CHILD DEVELOPMENT CHATS

Throughout the year, the clinicians at the Center for Developing Minds host informal and interactive sessions -- Child Development Chats -- where topics in child behavior, development concerns and parenting questions can be discussed. The chats allow parents, teachers and other clinicians to learn from each other under the facilitation of Dr. Damon Korb, an experienced behavioral and developmental pediatrician, as well as other CDM professionals. Frequently, the chat session will focus on a specific area of interest. Please see the schedule for more details about each topic.

Discussions will be held at the Center for Developing Minds. Free of charge. Open to adults only (no children please).
