September 30, 2010
Franklin Health Child & Adolescent Developmental Pediatrics and the Franklin County Children’s Task Force announce the start of an autism support group for parents and caregivers of children with autism. The group will be facilitated by Tami Labul, the parent of a child with autism.
The first meeting will take place on Thursday, October 14, from 6:30–8 p.m. at the Franklin County Children’s Task Force, located at 113 Church Street in Farmington.
“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 will be 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 the Children’s Task Force at 778-6960 or Developmental Pediatrics.
