Parent Child Journey Dan ShapiroDan Shapiro, M.D.

Fellow, American Academy of Pediatrics
Member, Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics

I came from my hometown of East Lansing, Michigan to attend medical school at George Washington University in D.C. My Pediatric Residency training was at Children’s Hospital in DC. Then I practiced Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine in Silver Spring, Maryland for 13 years before shifting my focus to Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. I enjoy seeing children and consulting with parents in my home office. I also observe children and collaborate with educators at dozens of area schools. I developed the Journey Program and offer this behavior management training group throughout Greater Washington. I am married with 4 children and 2 grandchildren- all wonderfully different. My hobbies include music, reading and floating down the Potomac in a kayak.

Parent Child Journey Sarah WylandSarah C. Wayland, Ph.D.
Guiding Exceptional Parents, LLC

Special Needs Care Navigator
Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) Consultant

I grew up in New Mexico and went to college at Rice University in Texas; then on to Boston where I received a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology at Brandeis University and postdoc training at Northeastern University. I was a research scientist at the University of Maryland’s School of Medicine and the Center for Advanced Study of Language. After many years in research and industry, I decided to put my practical experience as a parent to use as a special needs care navigator and RDI Consultant. I help parents of children with ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities and other challenges that make it hard to function at school or home.
