The 16th Annual Early Intervention Update was May 23 at University Church of Christ in Tuscaloosa. The daylong event was sponsored by Three Rivers Early Intervention District VII Coordinating Council, the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (for Alabama’s Early Intervention System), and Auburn University Montgomery.

The morning began with Lauren Wilson, the parent of a child with a disability, whose general session topic was ‘And The Doctor Said … A Family’s Story from Birth to Adulthood.’

The mini-conference also featured nine distinct breakout sessions with topics such as abnormal and normal feeding for infants and toddlers, pediatric sleep patterns, strategies to enhance social-emotional development in young children, the importance of followup for preemies, and common visual impairments in infants and young children.
