Overview of Webinar:

The decision of whether or not to retain/promote a child with a communication disorder is not an easy one.  Every child and situation is different, but in most cases, the considerations are the same.

This webinar features: topics to considering whether to retain or promote a child, retention research, and what you can do to help make a final decision.
