Center Hosts Special Needs Conference

Posted: Updated:

There are many challenges in raising a special needs child. Creating strong connections can make success easier to achieve.

And making those connections was the focus of the Pathfinder Parent Involvement Conference in Minot today.  

The three-day meeting brings together parents, teachers and other support groups involved in the daily lives of special needs children. 

From getting kids interested in reading and writing, to handling different behaviors, and creating relationships, the group covered many aspects of parenting.

"One of the things that's consistently found through research is that parenting a child with special needs is a very isolating experience. It seems to help people is they can come together and realize that they're doing something just like hundreds and thousands of other parents," says Cathy Haarstad of the Pathfinder Parent Center.

If you are a parent to a special needs child and are looking for advice and resources call the center at 837-7500.
