Tune in for a ‘Minimizing Holiday Chaos: Routine Management for Children with Special Needs’ Webinar at 11:00 a.m. ET (10:00 a.m. CT) on December 11, 2019.

For parents of children with special needs or disabilities, “spontaneous” and “carefree” are not words that can be associated with a holiday. Holidays can be chaotic for children with special needs particularly due to unfamiliarity, sensory overload and a lack of usual support systems. In fact, in a national survey released in November 2018, the New York University Child Study Center, reported that two-thirds (66%) of parents of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) agreed that getting their child back into a normal routine after time away from school is difficult and more than half reported being frustrated while helping their child through daily activities (Adamec, 2018).

Our online (through Facebook Events) Caregiver Support Group is scheduled to meet on Friday, July 12, from 10:00 - 11:30. You just open the Support Group event on our page, and hit the Discussion tab. This week, I would like to get some feedback about our Support Group. We have tried multiple options - meeting at ACS, at the SFAC, during the day, in the evening, and now, virtually on Facebook - and it seems we just don't get much of an attendance. We would like to offer something that benefits our families, and are seeking suggestions - times, places, topics - How can we (ACS EFMP) serve you and your family's support needs? Thanks for your positive comments and suggestions.

Tomorrow is supposed to be partly cloudy (which means partly sunny!), and in the low 70s. It's a PERFECT day to meet us at the Watertown Farmer's Market! I'll be wearing my red EFMP t-shirt - look for me in front of the Flower Memorial Library to sign in - then GO and EXPLORE! Fresh fruits, vegetables, baked goods and more! It's a great opportunity to get something 'North Country' for your 4th!
