The Genetic Seminar Series will offer 7 webinars on a variety of topics impacting pediatric patients. Each webinar in this series will cover a different topic such as Fragile X Syndrome, Noonan Syndrome, Down Syndrome, CHARGE Syndrome, 22q11 Deletion Syndrome, as well as Autism Spectrum Disorders and new approaches to evaluating a child with developmental disabilities. In addition, Laura Buckner, M.Ed., LPC and MOM will discuss the important impacts of person-centered planning practices for each webinar.
Objectives of the series:
- Discuss genetic causes of developmental disabilities in children.
- Describe the genetic evaluation and testing process.
- Discuss steps family members can take to address their child's needs (present and future), and identify available local, state and national resources.
The series is planned to increase knowledge of the improved ability to diagnose children with developmental disabilities leading to earlier management and treatment. In addition, increased awareness of resources for health care providers and families of affected children.
This series is possible thanks to funding from the UT Texas Center for Disability Studies and presented jointly with Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital. The series is presented with support by the Department of State Health Services and collaboration with ECI/HCSS.
