Florida Institute of Technology’s School of Psychology offers free monthly workshops of particular interest to parents, educators and professionals who deal with issues of autism. The next event, on Aug. 24, is “Ask the Pediatrician,” from 6:30 to 8 p.m., in the Scott Center for Autism Treatment seminar room. This will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions in a “non-office” setting.
Dr. Jan Borowski will be available to answer questions and discuss the issues that arise. A Brevard County pediatrician, she has more than 30 years of experience and specializes in adolescent medicine. Borowski is also a member of the Autism Coalition, which serves the needs of families of children with autism spectrum disorders.
