Important Message ´╗┐from the
Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County

Please Share Our Parent Webinar Tomorrow!

Dear Child Care Providers, Educators, Teachers, and Unsung Heroes,

Please encourage any families you serve to join us TOMORROW at 6:00 PM for a New FREE Webinar for Parents; an all-new opportunity for Parents of Children with Autism and Other Related Disabilities.

In this all-new format, the discussion will include two Clinical Support Specialists from Florida Atlantic University's Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (FAU CARD) and will take place in the form of a "Parent Panel." We will be discussing the challenges and victories parents face when given a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with mothers of children with ASD. Our staff is also happy to welcome parent, Ms. Carol Del Sol, to participate in the discussion --- she is a Registered Nurse and will be speaking on her experience with ASD and her teenage son.

Parents will be be able to:

  • Learn about the resources given by FAU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities
  • Learn about resources given by ELCPBC
  • Listen to real-life experiences from mothers of children with different ages

This Parent Panel is geared toward families who have recently received a diagnosis and families who have a concern.

Please continue to contact the Provider Hotline with your comments, questions, concerns, etc.: 1.877.767.4659.

Thank you,

The Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County
