Marianne Russo

Patient Leader

Founder, President and Host of The Coffee Klatch Special Needs Talk Radio Network, Director of Development and Communications at Bright Not Broken Lorna Wing Institute Of America. Marianne created The Coffee Klatch to give parents of special needs children a forum to find and share the best resources and information available. Empowering and enlightening parents of children with differences has been my goal. What you see is not always what you get and Marianne encourages you to dig deep, always searching for answers and never give up hope. There are answers and The Coffee Klatch Special Needs Talk Radio Network is there to help parents and educators find them.
