It takes a village to raise a child…
And to raise a child with special needs, it takes more. Positive Paths is a grass-roots support group for parents of children with special needs. Special needs includes any learning, developmental, medical, behavioral or mental issues your child might be struggling with, such as dyslexia, ADHD, brain injuries, autism, food allergies, cerebral palsy, etc.
Positive Paths meets at 7:30 p.m. every 2nd Wednesday of each month in the Wyoming Civic Center. The next meeting is December 14th with a special guest speaker from Hamilton County Development Disabilities Services (HCDDS). HCDDS promotes opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to fully participate in their communities. Feel free to e-mail email@example.com for more information.
