Advocating for Your Special Needs Child

Advocating for Your Special Needs Child
Increasingly, today’s families find themselves caring for a special needs child and often the caregiver is  inexperienced in securing resources to insure a healthy, happy, and thriving child. To get help, especially in cases of atypical diagnosis, the caregiver is forced to navigate the maze of red tape and sketchy information only to find there are minimum or difficult to obtain resources available.
Our special guest, Dr. Tanya Tammie LaVerne Fowler, Bio Medical Anthropologist, will provide information on how to advocate on behalf of special needs children to achieve a successful outcome.

 

At an early age, Dr. Fowler’s grandson, Shane, was diagnosed with Aspergers Autism Spectrum Disorder and as his caregiver throughout his life she has researched, implemented and advocated on behalf of  Shane to bring awareness to his diagnosis and access resources to help him flourish and she’s here to share her experience and tools for success with you.  Whether this situation rings true for your family, or someone you know, join us for an enlightening discussion. Share your questions and comments with us.
