    Speaker:   Michelle Smithman,

    Title:         Parent to Parent of PA

    Topic:  Many parents of a child or children with intellectual and developmental disabilities feel alone and in some cases isolated from the world. Although family or friends try to support and understand your issues they at times simply don’t get it. It’s not because they don’t care or have compassion, it can simply be that they have not traveled in your shoes. Parent to Parent is an organization of parents who have experienced your issues and have relate-able life experiences. hear about and explore this organization and how it may be a resource and network that can assist you and your family in its journey.

    Parent to Parent is a national program with 34 states participating.

    Speaker Bio:  Michelle Smithman is a Southeastern Regional Coordinator for Parent to Parent of PA. Parent to Parent is an organization that links families of children with special needs or disabilities with other families for support and informational purposes. Michelle has been a volunteer with Parent to Parent since 1996, when her son, Brian, was three years old. Brian was diagnosed at six months of age as a stroke victim. He suffered a massive stroke in-utero and has an overall diagnoses of Cerebral Palsy, with a right hemiparesis, seizure disorder and intellectual delays. With the help of his many teachers and therapists (including the ARC where he went for Early Intervention), Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and his older sister, Emily, he has surpassed many expectations. But no parent travels these journeys alone, and that’s where Parent to Parent comes in. The amount of information and support that a parent needs is enormous and doesn’t end at any particular age. As Brian is now 22 and finished school and attending an adult day program, Michelle and her family is now navigating through a whole new world. Having support from parents through the years has been an enormous help and she is very glad to now have the opportunity to help make those connections for other parents.
