Our 8th episode of season 2 on Impact stigma is all about early childhood behavioral and neurodevelopmental issues in children. The stigma and heartache parents face from the world and their families, friends and themselves is exhausting so we are talking about it. We are giving those parents a voice and having a great conversation talking about younger kiddos and their parents. Frontier Health has a fabulous free internationally recognized parent-implemented program that helps parents work with their own children with behavioral and neurodevelopmental issues. Come and listen while we laugh and dig deep with Regional Intervention Program Resource Consultant and a Case Manager for Holston Children and Youth, Rebecca Roosa! You don’t want to miss this one!
