Exploring the Early Years-Understanding Children with Different Abilities
Presenters: Millicent Franco
INCLUDEnyc presents a new, interactive, 2-hour workshop for parents who have concerns about their child's development and/or whose children may have classmates with autism or other developmental delays. Get an overview of basic child development milestones and common parent concerns -- including autism, speech delays, and sensory processing disorder. Learn about screening and diagnostic tools, how to navigate Early Intervention and CPSE, OPWDD, and how to build a support system.
Learn more about the services available to children with known or suspected disabilities or delays, and foster a shared sense of triumph and trial among all parents struggling with the emotional roller coaster of parenting young children.
Parents will receive some small sensory toys that can be helpful to *all* children, and participating schools will receive a sensory gift box to help create or enhance sensory integration and/or calm corners in their classrooms or play areas.
We regret that child care is not provided and encourage you to make other arrangements for your child.
