Chat with Coffee Klatch Special Needs Radio Founder
By Rachel L. West, MSW, LMSW
The Political Social Worker
Last night Social Work Chats by Social Work Helper welcomed Marianne Russo, Founder and President, of Coffee Klatch Special Needs Radio.
Coffee Klatch special needs radio airs programs aimed at providing information and support to parents of special needs children.
The reason I asked Marianne to be a guest for Social Work Chats because I felt that the Coffee Klatch would be a great resource for social workers to have. It can be a means for us to educate ourselves about the issues surrounding being the parent of a special needs child as well as being a resource we can give to parents we are working with. I think this would be particularly beneficial to a parent living in an area where there are few support groups.
