The Lenses We Look Through

Finding Our Children, Helping Them Find Themselves

The Lenses We Look Through

An evening to think about how lenses and labels affect lives. An evening to share thoughts about the ways we discover, describe and support the interests, talents, challenges and needs of our children with learning differences as they grow from infancy to young adulthood. Guiding our children as they discover who they are, and guiding our schools and communities in appreciating, embracing, supporting and including our kids.

Ann Parker is a Pediatrician working with children and with families of children with neurodevelopmental and associated behavioral differences and disabilities. After practicing general pediatrics in the Bay Area for several years, and loving it, she returned to the Kennedy Krieger Institute at Johns Hopkins University Medical Center for fellowship training in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities. This allowed her to pursue longheld interests in neurology and psychiatry and issues related to child development. Ann is particularly interested in the many ways children perceive, process and respond to the various “worlds” they encounter daily, and how this is reflected through the ways they communicate, socialize, engage with others, learn and develop. She seeks to explore and better understand how to use the clues we get from watching our children so we can help them grow to understand the many aspects of who they are, and so we can help others see our children for who they are.
