Guest Lecturer at ALYN

3 February, 2013

Jos Hendriksen, The Centre of Neurological Learning Disorders, The Netherlands

Duchenne and other muscular dystrophy diseases result in physical and emotional challenges. Other than the physical difficulties, research indicates children and teens may also deal with behavioral or learning disabilities. Often, family members, friends and even professionals from the education and treatment facilities, aren’t aware of the implications brought on by learning and behavioral disorders, as well as the emotional challenges faced by these children.

The lecture will be given by Jos Hendriksen, author of “The Psychology of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy”, clinical psychologist working at the Centre of Neurological Learning Disorders in the Netherlands, and the Maastricht University Hospital.

The lecture is a joined cooperation between ALYN and the Little Steps organization. It will be held on Sunday, February 17th 2013, at 14:00 at ALYN.

Participation is free (kindly sign up in advance) and we welcome both professionals and parents alike.

To sign up, please contact Ruth Palmor, Head of Psychology, 02-6494303,ruthp@alyn.org
