May Town Hall meeting - Behavior!
May 30th
5:30-8:00 (Place still TBD - check our website and facebook page for updated location)
With children who have developmental delays, including delayed communication, sometimes behavior is more than your typical testing the boundries issue and sometimes it’s not!  That can be very frustrating for children and parents alike.  Kiki Davis is an occupational therapist from S. June Smith/Excentia.  She currently works mostly with children 0-3, but her knowledge is vast and she’s anxious to help answer questions and give lots of great tips!

Reaching out!

LDSA has so much in the works right now!  We are very excited about our forward momentum and want to take a moment to tell you about it all!
  • Community Grants - we are raising money to give back to organizations that actively promote inclusion for people with disabilities.
  • Sports clinics - we are working with 2 locations to offer all sorts of sports clinics for children with disabilities.  LDSA is hoping to fully subsidize these clinics so they are free!  Please stay tuned for more information.
  • School collaboration - LDSA is actively seeking to connect with educators to determine how we can help them help us!  We will let you know as we meet with the different schools and work out these plans!
  • Family Grants - as the money becomes available through our planned fundraisers, we will have money available for families to attend educational seminars and conferences!  Look for it here!
  • Community Calendar - please keep checking the calendar on our website for upcoming events in the community!  As we learn about them, we will post on our calendar, upcoming educational opportunities we feel could be valuable to our followers.  If there is a group or event you think we should know about, please let us know!
