Kirch's First Miracle Kid
I love working directly with caregivers. Since its inception, I worked with Laura Silverman in the Behavior Intervention for Families clinic, which is an outpatient extension of the research conducted by Tristram Smith and colleagues at the RUBI Autism Network.
This systematic approach provides a foundation that enables caregivers to implement strategies to target specific concerns at home.
Each year, Golisano Children's Hospital chooses five children and families as Miracle Children throughout the departments of the hospital. Their stories reflect the "...genuine fighting spirit we all can learn from and be inspired by." Daniel is the first child chosen from the Kirch Developmental Services Center. It was an honor and joy to work with Fauna and Daniel during this part of their journey. Read Daniel's story here.
