If you're a parent of a child with a developmental disorder, such as autism, ADHD, or Downs syndrome, you're invited to a panel discussion I'll be moderating in Guilford, CT, on Tuesday, April 26 at 6 pm. The panel will include doctors, researchers, and social workers. We'll be discussing some of the most common questions parents have, on topics such as how developmental disorders are assessed, how early intervention helps children, and how parents themselves can cope with the challenges of caring for a disabled child. The meeting will be hosted by SARAH, Inc., a non-profit agency serving the intellectually disabled in Connecticut. You can find more details about the meeting and the panelists on their web site here. To attend the meeting, register here. If you'd like to have the panel address a question, you can email the organizers, or post your question on their Facebook page. The event will be taped, and will be broadcast later here in Connecticut. Please spread the word to parents you think might be interested.
