Dr. James Coplan will speak at Neumann University on Tuesday, April 1, about the history of developmental disorders and his professional experience dealing with children and young adults who have been diagnosed with these disorders.
His presentation is scheduled for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Meagher Theatre of the Bruder Life Center on the Neumann campus.
Dr. Coplan is an internationally recognized clinician, author and public speaker in the fields of child development, early language development and autism spectrum disorder. He created the Early Language Milestone Scale (ELM Scale-2), a test of language development for children from birth to 36 months of age.
He is the author of “Making Sense of Autistic Spectrum Disorders: Create the Brightest Future for Your Child with the Best Treatment Options.”
Dr. Coplan draws upon his personal experience as the sibling of an individual with developmental disabilities, as well as his clinical expertise and academic training, to provide guidance to families of children with special needs and practical, evidence-based recommendations to child-care professionals.
The presentation is designed for parents and teachers of children with developmental disabilities; school counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists; autism advocacy and support groups; occupational and behavioral therapists; and first responders, caregivers and social workers.
General admission is $15. To reserve a seat, contact Dr. Tammy Feil at 610-558-5604 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
