The Art of Parenting…with Autism (or, the art of being an autistic parent) – Part 1

April 6, 2023, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Art of Parenting, Exploration Session, Autistic Parenting

Parenting is fraught with joys and challenges on even the best days. But when you’re an autistic parent, these things can be amplified.

This new Exploration Session designed especially for parents covers the spectrum in two parts. It is for parents who are autistic and also, it is for parents of both autistic and non-autistic children.

Part 1 will focus on being an autistic parent and the art of balancing what you need versus the needs of your children. Through a short presentation, discussion and activities, participants will receive support and tips and strategies for navigating the joys and challenges of parenting and coping in the healthiest ways possible, with a focus on self-care and compassion.

If you are an autistic parent, or the parent of an autistic child, you will benefit from this session.

Join us Thursday, April 6 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
