Emergency planning for children & adults with special needs
Part of ADMI’s continuing parent training series
MILTON, Pa. – Geisinger’s Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute (ADMI) is sponsoring a parent training session on how to prepare for emergencies for children and adults with special needs.
The training session will take place Sept. 10, from 6-7:30 p.m., at the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit (CSIU), 190 Lawton Lane and is free to attend.
