The Quad’s Monday Workshop Series


Kindergarten & Beyond: Navigating Turning 5  

Sarah Birnbaum, Monday September 19th 6-8 pm

The parent of a child with special needs, Sarah Birnbaum has amassed a wealth of knowledge in dealing with New York City’s unique subculture of therapists, agencies, schools, and governmental bodies. She turned her experience into a consultancy helping parents navigate the maze of services and educational options here. She guides parents to schools that can best support their children’s needs, gives advice on the application process, coaches them on working with their school districts, and helps them to become powerful advocates. But most importantly, she offers them support in coping with the complicated emotions that accompany the quest to educate an exceptional child.

Raising a Sensory Smart Child

Lindsey Biel, MA OTR/L Monday December 12 6-8 pm

Lindsay Biel is a pediatric Occupational Therapist with a private practice in New York City. She works with children, teens, and young adults with sensory processing disorder, autism spectrum disorders, developmental delays, learning challenges, and other issues. She is also the author of “Raising a Sensory Smart Child” that has long been the “bible” for children with sensory difficulties–those who struggle to process everyday sensations and exhibit unusual behaviors such as avoiding or seeking out touch, movement, sounds, and sights. In this talk, Ms. Biel will describe SPD and best practices to help those affected by it: from the right type of therapies to practical tips on parenting in a “sensory smart” way.
