October 21, 2010
Franklin Health Child & Adolescent Developmental Pediatrics announces the start of an autism support group for parents and caregivers of children with autism. The group is facilitated by Tami Labul, the parent of a child with autism.
Meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month from 6:30–8 p.m. in the Foster Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital. The next meeting takes place on November 11.
“Tami has been a great advocate for her son. She is an adult outpatient counselor, and has experience with support groups,” said Sandy Richard, coordinator/resource specialist at Franklin Health Child & Adolescent Developmental Pediatrics (Developmental Pediatrics). “She is a wonderful facilitator of the group.”
“If child care, transportation, or other obstacles would prevent someone from attending the support group, he or she should call our offices at 779-2168 and we will try to accommodate their needs,” Richard added.
For more information, contact Developmental Pediatrics at 779-2168.
