Yachad Family Shabbaton at Hudson Valley Resort - May 13-15, 2011
I was invited to speak at the 25th Annual Yachad Family Shabbaton this past weekend at the Hudson Valley Resort in Kerhonkson, New York. Yachad is a national Jewish organization dedicated to addressing the needs of all individuals with disabilities and including them in the Jewish community. The event, which this year attracted more guests than ever in the past, offered workshops on different topics with respect to individuals with special needs such as sensory integration, social skills deficits, parenting, residential programs, executive functioning skills, autism, Down Syndrome, and two sessions on special education law presented by this firm. The weekend also offered parents opportunities to attend support groups with similarly situated parents and to participate in various other sessions and activities.
