Our next Art of Parenting…with Autism group meets Thursday, April 25 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. online via Sinneave Connects.

Each Art of Parenting session focuses on different aspects of parenting through the lens of being Autistic and/or parenting Autistic children. Through a short presentation, discussion and activities, participants will receive encouragement, support and practical short and long term strategies for navigating parenting in the healthiest way possible, with a focus on self-care and compassion.

This particular session will offer advice and provide strategies around sleep issues, routines and realistic goals that families can make and meet to help everyone get some sleep. Lack of sleep can make everything feel so much worse than it is! Together, we’ll look at short- and long-term options.

These sessions intend to educate, empower and encourage parents on their journey, as well as create a safe community of ongoing support. Participants will benefit from the practical information provided in each session as well as the connection of others who share similar experiences.

During this session, Sinneave staff, guest presenters, and attendees may share information about community resources. Information provided may not always be accurate, up-to-date, or reliable. Attendees are encouraged to be critical consumers of information available on the internet. Providing information about a community resource is not endorsement and Sinneave does not assume any risk for the outcome of using the information shared during this session.

This session is FREE and entirely virtual, via our Sinneave Connects online learning platform.

The Art of Parenting – April 25

About the Presenter: Joannie Rosevear is a neurodivergent mother of five beautiful children. She is passionate about supporting and encouraging other families so they don’t feel alone in their journey. Her personal experience in parenting children both on and off the spectrum informs the work she does as a Program Facilitator with The Sinneave Family Foundation, knowing that, while books, resources and professionals are helpful, connecting with someone with lived experience and who “gets it” can be truly empowering.
