Crozer Keystone Autism Awareness

October 2015, West Chester, PA. Crozer-Chester Hospital’s annual David Baker Day, a Continuing Medical Education lecture series, is scheduled for October 27. This year’s topic is Autism: Putting the Pieces Together. The objectives of the day are to better grasp the diagnostic criteria, comorbidities, management and treatment of autism. Anyone in the medical community that attends may receive up to 4 CME units commensurate with their level of participation.

Theraplay, Inc., a leader in pediatric therapy, will be presenting two topics for the series: speech therapy, including alternative communication systems as they relate to autism, and occupational therapy techniques, including use of the Interactive Metronome. Irene Shetzline Jackson, MA, CCC-SLP and Center Manager of Theraplay’s Limerick Center and Megan Morace, MS, OTR/L and Center Manager of the Newtown Center, will be presenting speech and OT topics, respectively.

In addition to providing pediatric physical, occupational, speech and feeding therapies, Theraplay continually works to educate physicians, hospital staff, teachers and parents on a variety of concerns, red flags, and topics. This event allows Theraplay staff to share their expertise with a wide audience who will be able to put what they learn to good use.

Founded in 1991 by physical therapist Lisa Mackell, Theraplay’s ultimate goal is to provide the best pediatric physical, occupational, speech and feeding therapies in a play environment. For more information, visit theraplayinc.com.
