Parent Action Committee Meeting: Potty Training Special Needs Children
Multnomah Parent Action Committee Monthy Meeting is covering the topic "Potty Training Young Children with Special Needs," with MECP's Jean Borgerd RN, and Joanne Schrinsky, RN, and Parent Christy Reese, on Tuesday, April 14, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the East Portland Community Center, 740 SE 106th Ave., on TriMet lines #15 and 20.
The humorous and helpful conversation will help parents find ways to help your child meet this important milestone. They'll also discuss ways to remove barriers to community activities, childcare and preschools when your child isn't potty trained.
Refreshments are provided. Due to space limitations, no childcare is available, and parents are asked they not bring children older than 12 months. Childcare stipends are available.
