Practice Without Pressure (PWP) is an organization built to help individuals with intellectual disabilities learn step-by-step the procedures and common instruments used during routine doctor/dentist visits to help reduce stress and anxiety and make receiving healthcare easier for everyone.   The founder and CEO, Deborah Jastrebski, is a mother of a child with Down Syndrome who underwent so many procedures/surgeries that going to the doctor became a terrifying experience for both of them.  Many appointments resulted in her son having to be sedated or restrained to a papoose board just to get through it.   Deb created PWP as an alternative to help her family and others in similar situations work through the angst of regular check-ups.  PWP is a Delaware non-profit that empowers individuals with the confidence and tools necessary to overcome their fears and receive the medical, dental and personal care they need within a non-threatening environment.  Please join in hearing Deb tell more about this one of a kind organization and the concepts and techniques involved that make it so successful.
