November 12, 2019

In this episode we discuss the importance of a positive attitude in the world of PWS. Patrice Carroll and Katrina Fryklund discuss examples used in program at Latham Centers and the significance of Positive Behavioral Supports when working with somebody who is diagnosed with PWS.

Patrice and Katrina also highlight POSITIVE EXPOSURE, an organization focused on creating a positive environment in the special needs community through photography, "POSITIVE EXPOSURE, founded in 1998, utilizes the arts, film and narratives to present the humanity and dignity of individuals living with genetic, physical, behavioral and intellectual differences. POSITIVE EXPOSURE celebrates the beauty of human diversity, inclusive of ethnicity, religion, age, ability, learning style, gender expression and sexual orientation" (https://positiveexposure.org/).  

"A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results" -Wade Boggs
