Discussion details:

The presenter will present for 30-40 minutes followed by question and answer/discussion.

Human service professionals frequently work with families and children with cognitive disabilities and challenges. In this workshop, Dr. Lori Goss-Reaves will share her personal and spiritual journey as a Christian parent raising a child with Downs Syndrome and Autism. She will also share her professional experience with community resources and lessons she’s learned regarding how to best serve children with disabilities and their parents.

The goal of this presentation is to explore some challenges with parenting/providing service for individuals with special needs, particularly those with intellectual or developmental disabilities.  Along the way, Dr. Goss-Reaves hopes to encourage Christians regarding how this work can deepen our Biblical faith, and how Christians can become more empathic, effective caregivers.
