Special Needs Photo Sessions

Time: 10 a.m.-1 p.m.  
Complimentary mini photography sessions by Sam Scanlan from Scanlan Studios will capture your child. An expert in special needs photography, Sam will use a variety of camera lenses rather than the bright photography lights typically used for portraits, so children feel more comfortable and less anxious.  This session will give you the opportunity for either individual or family shots.  Included in your photo session is your favorite photo, which will be printed on site especially for you.

Food for the Heart, Mind & Soul
Time: 10 – 11 a.m.
Join us for an interactive discussion on the importance of taking care of yourself and your child both mentally and physically. Nutritionist Rebecca Aldag of Aldag Wellness, will share on the significance of nutrition for children on the autism spectrum and provide ideas for ways to ensure your child is getting all the nutrients needed to grow into a healthy adult, even while on a special diet. Nurse, business owner and mother of a special needs child, Celeste Brennan will share firsthand advice on thriving through the challenges faced in everyday life. Q&A to follow.

Let’s Play!
Time: 12- 1 p.m.
