for Parents of Children with Disabilities Wendy Baskins was hesitant to have her child labeled after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent chemo and radiation at age three. She was encouraged by her child care provider. Her child is
now 14 and she will share her pitfalls and how to overcome them, as well as, her successes. She considers the guiding of educators as her beginning of advocating for her son. Wendy has also worked with families in her job at the Rowan County Department of Social Services and has assisted clients and others in the community in effectively advocating for their
children’s needs. She will share it all with you!
