The Art of Parenting…with Autism

October 19, 2023, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

An illustration of a woman who is sitting cross legged and appears to be meditating. Out of her hair is a tangled web of many items that pertain to parenting, such as clothes, kids, purses, electronics, toys, household items and so on. It implies that her mind is full of many things.

You’re invited to join the Art of Parenting…with Autism. 

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 cover the issues that sometimes arise around sleep, coping strategies for co-occurring conditions such as ADHD, and the importance of self-care for parents and caregivers amid the day-to-day challenges of life.

These sessions intend to educate, empower and encourage parents on their journey, as well as create a safe community of ongoing support.

If you are an autistic parent, or the parent of an autistic child, you will benefit from this information and the connection of others who share similar experiences.

Join us Thursday, October 19 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
