Lindsey Williams with Major Psychology and Allison Coburn with AEC Child & Family Consulting will present a session about nurturing family relationships while raising kids with special needs. Spend some time learning how to better support your spouse or partner and raise a happier family! Topics will include partner grief responses, the impact on martial relations and the differing communication styles typically seen between men and women. We will also talk about family play and building a “growth mindset” toward parenting children with and without disabilities. There will be something for everyone, so single parents will enjoy this session too! Bring your spouse, bring you partner, or come by yourself, but don’t miss it!

Allison E. Coburn, Ph.D. (ABD) AEC Child & Family Consulting, L.L.C. Child, Family & Organization Consultant Pediatric Developmental Therapist
As a Developmental Therapist, I specialize in pediatric early intervention services for families with young children with autism (ASD), developmental delays (PDD-NOS), and sensory processing disorder (SPD) provided in their homes, schools, and clinic settings throughout the Central Indiana area. My approach emphasizes child development within the context of familial relationships and shared playful interactions between parent(s) and child(ren) that are meaningful, positive, and pleasurable, thus creating the foundation necessary for development to occur across all domains. In my six years of pediatric experience, I have pursued many professional developmental credentials than enable me to provide families with the developmental, social, behavioral and communicative resources they need to further promote their child’s growth and development.
