On January 8, the Newton Parent Advisory Council for Special Education will host an evening meeting on the topic of Talking To Your Child About Their Diagnoses/Disabilities. Special guests will include Dot Lucci, M.Ed., C.A.G.S. Director of Consultation, MGH/YouthCare, Alison Mountford, Coordinator of Therapeutic Services, Andrew Aspel, School Psychologist, NSHS; Lynn Chachkes, School Psychologist, Countryside School; Victoria Vendola, Assistant Principal for Student Services, Day Middle School; and Dan Almeida, Supervisor of ABA Services. The decision about when and how to talk to a child about their differences can be a challenging one for parents and guardians. Please join us for a panel discussion on the subject, beginning at 7:30PM with a discussion for parents of younger children who may be preparing to have their first conversations about disabilities or diagnoses. The second half of the program, starting about 8:15PM, will be about having these conversations with older children, and about how, when and to whom they might want to disclose information about their disabilities. We encourage parents of kids of all ages to come at 7:30PM if they can, to share their perspectives and experience with other families. There will be plenty of time for questions to the panel for both parts of the program. The meeting will take place in Room 210 of the Education Center. Refreshments and networking begin at 7:15PM and the meeting will start promptly at 7:30PM. Thanks!
