The Early Years
The diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders is stressful and overwhelming. Families and professionals need all the supports available as they begin to cope with the condition. Supports help with behavior management, visual learning, seeking medical services, sensory integration therapies and financial strategies through waiver programs to secure services. This workshop can be a great way to help you on this journey.

Date: April 16, 2016
Location: Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital, 2050 Versailles Road, Lexington, KY 40504
