NY, NJ, PA, CT Support Group

New York Area Support Group for X and Y Chromosome Variations

The next meeting

Sunday, November 9, 2014


The New York Area Support Group for X and Y Chromosome Variations will meet from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday, November 9, at St. Charles Hospital, 2nd Floor Board Room, 200 Belle Terre Road, Port Jefferson NY 11777.  A clinical psychologist will speak on the importance of neuropsychological testing in obtaining appropriate services for both children and adults with extra X or Y chromosomes.  Because persons with XXY, XXX or XYY usually have IQs in the normal range, testing targeted at identifying specific areas of disability can be critical in obtaining special education services, vocational and college accommodations, and government benefits, such as SSI.

There will be tea and coffee available.  We always appreciate donations of no-calorie soda, juice, and snacks such as pretzels.  A donation of $5 per attendee at the door is requested.  No facilities for children are available at St. Charles. 

RSVP: To confirm your attendance, please e-mail by November 4.

Driving:  Take the LIE to Exit 63, North Ocean Avenue.  Go north to Route 112 and turn left.  Take 112 into Port Jeff.  Just past the train station, turn right onto North Country Road, drive one block and turn left onto Belle Terre Road.  St. Charles is 3/4 miles on the left.

Train:  Take the LIRR to Port Jefferson.  It is a 1 mile walk or taxi ride along Belle Terre Road from the Port Jeff station.  

Ferry:  The Bridgeport-Port Jefferson Ferry terminal is one mile from St. Charles.  Take Broadway up the hill to Belle Terre Road and turn right.
