3rd Annual Family Resilience ConferencePosted: June 12, 2014
On Saturday, October 18, 2014 Devereux will present its 3rd annual family resilience conference. This year’s theme will be, “Accepting and Supporting Our Children’s Differences: Building Resilient Families”. Each year, Devereux gives families the opportunity to learn ways to help support their loved ones with special needs, challenges, or differences by sponsoring a family resilience conference. This annual event is open to the public and all families are welcome to attend. Space will be limited and registration will be required.
The conference includes interactive workshops led by leaders in their fields, a parent panel, resource tables packed with valuable information on a wide range of subjects, and exhibitor tables staffed by representatives from local providers. Kicking off this year’s conference is Andrew Solomon, New York Times best-selling author of Far From the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity.

This year’s conference will be held on the campus of Saint Joseph’s University thanks to a partnership with the Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support at Saint Joseph’s University. Complimentary childcare for youth of all abilities is available onsite, though space is limited. Childcare registration is required. Childcare will be located within the Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support on the campus of saint Joseph’s University.
