A special thanks to Ms. Diane Pope and the Autism Hope Center for inviting us to participate in April’s Autism Support Group Meeting in Recognition of Autism Awareness Month 2015. Dr. Michelle DeRamus, Preferred Medical Group’s child psychologist, located at the Phenix City Children’s office, specializes in Autism Spectrum Disorder.
She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Alabama. She completed fellowships with the TEACCH Autism Program at the University of North Carolina and the University of Alabama Autism Spectrum Disorders Clinic. While she enjoys working with all children and adolescents and can treat anxiety, depression, anger, ADHD and more, her special area of interest is Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dr. DeRamus will share with parents about the learning style differences that occur in a child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and how these differences may affect the child’s behaviors and emotions. She will provide suggestions for how parents can best help their child with Autism Spectrum Disorder by acknowledging these differences and by applying this knowledge to the way that the parents relate to the child.
Childcare is provided for this talk on Tuesday, April 28th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., if you call ahead. Details below:
