Dynamic Duals: DS-ASD

A MADSS & GiGi's Collaboration

Guest Speaker Elizabeth Delsandro, MS, CCC-SLP, Waisman Center

Does your child need help getting ready for school, putting away clothes, or something else?  Video modeling may increase independence.  Speech and Language Pathologist Elizabeth Delsandro from the Waisman Center will demonstrate how to create personalized videos using phones. 

Dynamic Duals, sponsored by MADSS & GiGi’s Playhouse, is a monthly program designed specifically for families and individuals with a dual diagnosis of DS-ASD and/or sensory or behavioral challenges. Parents meet in one area to connect, have fun, share successes, resources, and strategies. Duals engage in activities specifically designed to work on improving communication, easing transitions, supporting motor skills, and exploring the sensory world based on individual needs and preferences. Siblings can join Duals in activities that match their interests or choose other options. Our focus is creating relationships, working on individual goals and ensuring participants feel comfortable and safe in our environment. A light snack will be provided.

Please let us know you are coming at least one week before, so we can be sure to have enough volunteers. To RSVP please contact Wendy at:
