Free Workshop for People with Autism & Special Needs, Parents, Caregivers, Professionals, and Educators
The New Normal: 7 Things to Know as You Care for & Love a Child with Special Needs*
Presenter: Dr. Nancy Musarra, Clinical Psychologist & Author
Disabilities do not discriminate. Anyone’s child can be born with or develop Autism or a medical or mental health condition. Anyone’s child can be involved in an accident, resulting in a lifetime of challenges. The color of your skin, level of your education or size of your bank account won’t make a difference.
In her book, The New Normal: 7 Things to Know as You Care for & Love a Child with Special Needs, including Autism, psychologist Nancy Musarra shares her challenges and triumphs as the mother of a child with special needs. Having interviewed hundreds of people—from parents to caregivers—who have walked the same path, Dr. Nancy shares their stories and reflections. Collectively, their wisdom forms the foundation of the Seven Things You Need to Know to be prepared for your journey.
Dr. Nancy Musarra is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 17 years of experience counseling children, teens and adults. The mother of three, she combines her education, clinical skills and experiences to help individuals and families achieve balance, success and meaningful connections with others. Dr. Musarra maintains a private practice and has lectured in the United States and Europe. She specializes in psychological assessments, intervention strategies, and performance anxiety.
