Parent workshop | Raising a Child with Special Needs: Living with Uncertainty

In this workshop, the participants will discuss the emotional and practical effects of living with uncertainty about their child’s diagnosis, progress or life course. Parents may wonder  – are my expectations realistic? Is my child unwilling or unable? Do my family members understand? Come join us and hear Dr. Grossman and a panel of parents describe their journey and the strategies to support personal and family well-being.


Dr. Judy Grossman, is the Director of Ackerman’s Special Needs Project, Associate Director of the Center for the Developing Child and Family and adjunct faculty at New York University. She has lectured nationally and internationally about parenting, family resilience, mental health consultation and early intervention/special education policy and programs.
