This course will focus on how all children are more alike than different.  Joining us as a presenter will be a parent, whoi s also a current Family Child Care Provider, sharing her personal experiences of raising a child with both down syndrome and autism.  Her hope is to share their story and allow others to see that all children are more alike than different.  This course will help child care providers understand that all children have diverse needs, how to respond to the needs and their families positively, and to be receptive to personal change in order to better a child.
