Keep your calendar open for a special event in January. It’s the LIFE Conference. I have attended this conference for many years and I highly recommend it to all parents of children with special needs. It is a great place to gather information, meet other parents and professionals, and learn about topics that directly affect families in Delaware. You can call me if you have any questions.
