SPECIAL SESSION FRIDAY NOON
The Problem isn’t the Game, it’s the Playbook: How having a Child with Autism Changed our Lives - Matt & Brenda McNiff, Beatrice, NE
After years of working with children with special needs, Matt and Brenda McNiff were given their very own child with autism. The diagnosis of autism was both unexpected and difficult to overcome. As they managed the news, they found that their playbook, both professionally and personally, was no longer effective. Not only did they find that they needed a whole new playbook at home, they found that it changed the way that they viewed working with other professionals and families of children with special needs. In the short nine years that they’ve been parents of a child with autism, they’ve learned some valuable lessons on how to develop winning teams for children. Join these two dynamic speakers for an inside look at what it’s like to have your life turned upside down only to find that the new perspective is a much better one.
