Remarkable Families Symposium

Kyle Pope
9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. , Friday March 01 | $25 before Feb. 18. $40 afterward

Raising children with special needs is a tough job. But it can also be very rewarding. That is the message of the Remarkable Families Symposium co-sponsored by the Center for Infants and Children with Special Needs at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Xavier University.

Tri-state parents raising children with special needs will find information, resources and networking opportunities in an effort to build family resiliency and learn not only to survive but to thrive.


The keynote address will be given by Paul Daugherty, award-winning columnist for the Cincinnati Enquirer, author and father of a remarkable family. He earned a degree in journalism from Washington and Lee University and has worked in Baltimore, Norfolk, Va., and Dallas. Currently, a columnist for the Cincinnati Enquirer, he has been Ohio's Columnist of the Year seven times and an award-winning sports journalist and author. Married with two children, Daugherty is also a dedicated husband and father involved in disabilities advocacy for several years. 


"Remarkable Families: Building Resiliency in Families Raising Children with Special Needs" brings together parents of children with special needs. The conference offers 18 one-hour workshops to help parents learn their strengths, network with others and discover things that will help them become more resilient and thrive. 


 A resource fair will feature more than 50 vendors and service agencies specializing in medical support, recreation, community programs and services, home health, financial planning and more.
