Today’s topic is Well Child Syndrome. We will discuss the emotional and social development of the sibling of a special needs child, early warning signs of distress as well as evidence-based research and interventions to bolster positive outcomes for this population, that is often missed until pathology becomes apparent. Spanish translation available.
