2013 Symposium DVDs Now Available

Dr. Matthew Siegel, Dr. Lee Wachtel, and EASI President Amy Lutz

There are few things as disruptive to a family as a child who is a constant threat to hurt himself or others.  And there is so much bad information out there, leaving parents convinced they can stop their children's severe aggression and/or self-injury by dietary changes or discipline, when in many cases these types of interventions are doomed to fail.  So we were thrilled to host our first symposium, "Treating Dangerous Behaviors in the Developmentally Disabled," featuring Dr. Lee Wachtel, Medical Director of the Neurobehavioral Unit at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, and Dr. Matthew Siegel, Director of the Neurobehavioral Unit at Spring Harbor Hospital, on December 4.  Approximately 130 parents and providers from facilities across the region came to listen to the fabulous talks, which focused on the function of behaviors (or lack thereof), specialized inpatient units, medication, and electroconvulsive therapy.

DVDs of the symposium are now available for $20 (which includes shipping). To order, send a check to EASI Foundation, P.O. Box 351, Villanova, Pennsylvania 19085. Or if you'd like to pay by credit card, you can pay $20 through the PayPal link on our home page and send an email with your address to Please contact us if the cost represents a financial hardship; we have several DVDs set aside for those in need that we are happy to provide at no charge.
