Workshops Offered

A. Future and Estate Planning                                                  10:30-12:00am

Rebecca Pettit from The Arc of Frederick County will be sharing valuable information on future and estate planning for families and children with special needs. This is a difficult but realistic workshop that makes us all look at the plans we have in place for our children's future, from who will care for my child when I am unable, to how will my child have a satisfying life, to can I leave money to my child?    It is never too soon to start this process. 

B. ADHD-Practical Interventions at Home and at School                           12:30-2:00pm

    In this workshop, Jason Barth, LCPC, discusses executive functioning and practical ways parents, teachers,     

     and caregivers can provide an optimal environment for children with ADHD to learn and to live.  Mr. Barth holds a     

     Master of Arts degree in Mental Health Counseling from Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. and is a National
