For a child with special needs simple appointments to the
doctor, dentist and hairdresser can create major anxiety and meltdowns.  Kate Boylan from Behavioral Intervention
Institute of Ohio (BIIO) will lead an interactive discussion about how to help
children with sensory needs and/or anxiety issues successfully navigate these
experiences.  She will share ways to
prepare your child for these visits such as creating a visual schedule and writing
a social story.  Boylan will also discuss
strategies for establishing reinforcement and troubleshooting once you arrive
at your appointment.

Connecting for
Kids and the Westlake Porter Public Library are co-sponsoring childcare for
families during the discussion. To
reserve a spot for your child, visit www.connectingforkids.org
or email sarahrintamaki@connectingforkids.org.
