Xavier’s Symposium for Parents of Special Needs Children
The keynote address will be given by Dr. Gary Sweeten of Sweeten Life Systems. It is his life’s work to support families raising children with special needs both practically and spiritually. He recently began mobilizing churches and community organizations to build support systems around families of children with disabilities. In this session, he will share key insights from parents and caregivers of children with special needs, and how to support them, lower their stress, and increase their effectiveness and resiliency.
Eighteen breakout sessions will feature topics such as Developing Financial Trusts, Faith and Resiliency, IEPs, Health and Wellness, Insurance Waivers, and Dealing with Grief. Click here to see the full list.
