"Roles of Regulation, Reactivity and Flexibility in Autism Spectrum Disorder": Wednesday, September 12, 6-7:15 p.m.; a discussion on the effects of ASD on developmental stages and progression.

The programs are presented free; however, registration is appreciated. Free babysitting is also offered with advance registration by calling 480-6831 or by clicking here.
