Understanding Children with Genetic Diagnoses and Supporting Their Families


On occasions children may be presenting with developmental delays that are indicative of a genetic condition. Many genetic diagnoses are first identified because of global delays. This seminar will address the different genetic diagnoses that may be initially noticed because of what the EI team is recognizing through their evaluation and intervention. The seminar will also address how families process and cope with the diagnoses, which is most often very unfamiliar to them and provide EI providers with a better understanding of how to support families who have a child with a genetic diagnosis.
