If you are the parent of a child/adolescent with ASD, you may often feel isolated. It is a huge challenge to parent children with atypical development!
Parents need the support of external resource people who are knowledgeable about ASD, understand its impact on family life, and can point them in the direction of supports in Toronto for people on the ASD spectrum. Most importantly, parents need to meet other parents who share the same challenges. People who understand.
A new group is being offered this fall for parents of children with high functioning ASD/Asperger’s. It is a professionally led, mutual support group where you will have an opportunity to:
- learn about your child’s strengths and challenges
- improve your parenting skills
- locate resources in Toronto for people with Asperger’s/ASD
- develop plans for self care/ respite care
- have a confidential space to share your feelings
The group will be held at an accessible downtown Toronto location/next to a subway station on a monthly basis. Please contact me for further information, and to hold a spot. Start date: October. Days and times TBA -weekday evening or Saturday depending on group preference.
