NJCTS webinar series continues March 28 with presentation on sleep and developmental disabilities
One-hour presentation by Dr. Lawrence W. Brown will center around lessons for children, especially those with Tourette Syndrome and associated disorders
Titled “Sleep and Developmental Disabilities:
Dr. Brown is director of the Pediatric Neuropsychiatry Program, a multidisciplinary clinic for children whose complex learning and behavioral issues have a neurobiological basis. This population includes Tourette Syndrome, high-functioning autism and complex ADHD with co-morbidities, as well as those with epilepsy, genetic syndromes and other neurological disorders. Dr. Brown has a major interest in the development of emerging treatment approaches including investigational new drugs, vagus nerve stimulation, epilepsy surgery and the ketogenic diet.
In 2008, NJCTS launched the Wednesday Webinar series, which currently draws an audience from 48 states and 11 countries, and presents online seminars for parents, educators and professionals on topics of interest to the TS community at no-cost to participants each month. Professional development credits will be offered upon verifying attendance of the webinar and completion of the exit survey. They will be distributed by mail the week after the webinar.
