August 30, 2011
Franklin Health Child & Adolescent Developmental Pediatrics announces the restart of its autism support group for parents and caregivers of children with autism. These groups offer education, advocacy, and support for families affected by autism spectrum disorders. The group is facilitated by Tami Labul, a clinical social worker and the parent of a child with autism.
The meetings take place on the second Thursday of every month. The next meeting will be Thursday, September 8, from 6:30–8 p.m. at Franklin Memorial Hospital.
“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 childcare, 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.
