GUEST SPEAKER TODAY – Charles Evdos
 
Topic:  Cerebal Palsy Association of Nassau
 
Summary:  Charlie gave us a brief, but informative summary of CP of Nassau does!  They help numerous people with disabilities and not just people with cerebral palsy. 
They have a school, an early intervention program that helps kids get back to their local school district faster.  40% of their cases are cerebral palsy, some are brain trauma, muscular dystrophy, stroke victims and many more.  Charlie is hosting a Taste of Towns Event at Chateau Briand on September 14th at 6pm.  Please email Charlie if you’d like to attend his guest.  I have attached Charlie’s hand out and his contact information is below.  Great Job Charlie!
