There are a few things coming up that I wanted to share.
On February 9 at 6:30 p.m. in the WGHS library the West Genesee Special Education PTSA presents Dr Nicole DeRosa for a talk on Autism: Strategies for Families. Dr DeRosa, PsyD, BCBA-D, LBA is the Director of Behavior Disorders Clinic and Family Behaviors Analysis Program at Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital. She will be discussing effective strategies for increasing appropriate, functional skills and preventing challenging behavior in children with developmental disabilities and autism.
I have recently been made aware of an opportunity to join a research study for students with Autism here in Syracuse. Leanne Morphet, a parent in our District, has written a letter to Darlene and I explaining the research that is being done. Please click here to read the letter if you are interested in finding out more about this project.
Hope everyone stays healthy and warm!
