Autism support group event: The importance of speech therapies for children with special needs

Join the Agawam Autism Support Group this Thursday, December 3th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Agawam Senior Center located at 954 Main Street in Agawam, Massachusetts.

Guest speaker, Deb Mode, from the Language and Speech Center located in Holyoke, Massachusetts will be discussing the importance of speech therapies for children with special needs. There will be a Q&A session at the end.

The Agawam Autism Support Group meets the first and third Thursdays of every month in the Garden Room on the second floor at the Agawam Senior Center from 7pm-8:30pm.

Angie Bayless Jordan began the support group in March 2009 to give families of loved ones with Autism a place to get ideas, share experiences, and listen to knowledgeable guest speakers on various topics related to Autism.

The support group is free and open to the public.

    I am a speech pathologist and have seen children with Autism make great strides in their communication skills which has a positive impact on the entire family. Speech therapy can be an invaluable resource for both children and parents. I hope you have a very successful event.
