Relate Program Parent Learning Series
March 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This learning series is for families who have a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Intellectual Disability, and is offered by the Rehabilitation Centre for Children at SSCY. The purpose of the series is to give parents the skills they need to nurture their child’s social development.
The parent learning series combines 5 group learning sessions with 4 individual meetings with the program’s clinicians. These occur at regular checkpoints to help parents apply what they are learning.
Parents will discover how children develop social skills, communication and flexible thinking. They will also discover that small changes in their approach can have a big impact on their child’s learning. In each session, there will be an opportunity for discussion & practice. Homework will be assigned to help parents fit the ideas into their daily routines at home.
The information provided in each session builds upon the previous; parents are required to attend all sessions. Parents MUST enroll. Enrollment is limited.
