Speech Today for POAC-NoVA

Well my husband has roped me into speaking for at a POAC-NoVA meeting (Parents of Autistic Children of Northern Virginia) because of a speakers unfortunate death in the family.

The talk is very close to my heart and is on Socialization something we are still working on both my son with autism and myself as a sentience being dealing with a garden variety of people in novel ways.

POAC has many other parents speaking from 1pm-5pm at the JCC-NV more info is here http://www.poac-nova.org
