Adolescence features major developmental tensions physically, socially, emotionally and academically. As a parent of an adolescent, you may feel hard pressed to know how to help your child with complex problems. Our panel of experts will provide you with key pointers for recognizing problems when they start and offer specific ways to help your child engage in a meaningful, well-balanced life.
Questions addressed: When is intervention needed? Does your adolescent need an alternative school environment? Will your adolescent ever go back into mainstream education? What are reasonable parenting expectations? What supports should you make sure exist on a college campus?
As professionals and parents raising or working with a special needs child, we know it's critical to find the right support and guidance.

This includes examination of neuropsychological evaluations and diagnoses, child advocacy and managing relationships during times of stress. Parents, psychologists, learning specialists and interested professionals are encouraged to attend.
