Ask The Expert: A Series of Q/A sessions about Williams syndrome

Our goal is to reach as many families affected by Williams syndrome as possible, and we're excited to offer a new way for parents and caregivers to connect with experts!  

Once a month, an expert on a topic related to Williams syndrome will be conducting a webinar and Q/A session. They will take questions prior to the session and answer those, along with offering some background on the topic at hand, and there will be time at the end for organic questions and discussions that arise doing the session. To accomodate work and family schedules, as well as time zones, these online sessions will be held at 9 p.m. EST and will run one hour. These sessions are being provided because we know that some areas of the country don't have much in the way of specialized clinics or support and we want to reach as many parents and caregivers as possible. Thet will be recorded and available online for those who can't participate in real time. We are also starting Ask the Expert: IEP Edition. Every month, our education consultant Robin Pegg will be hosting a session specifically about IEPs. Scroll down for that schedule. Please register and send in your questions--we look forward to hearing from you and making these sessions a valuable experience.
