On May 7th we attended the first annual Special Needs Event at Girard College.  A big thank you to Rosemarie Hatcher, president of the Philadelphia Home and School Council for chairing and bringing this event to fruition.  There are many resources available for special needs children and adults in Philadelphia and much information was presented and is easily available. The guest speakers were Deputy Commissioner David T. Jones, Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disability Services and Megan Hayden co-founder of ProcessThis.  Both speakers gave very valuable information and insight.
