The sessions were facilitated by Dr. Katelyn Lowe, with support from Autism Society of British Columbia, assisted by local educators and autism moms Sue Noble and Teresa Peters. The weekend series was a huge success with 18 parents, 5 support workers and 2 teens with ASD taking part.
Since the Kelowna workshop, many participants have continued to connect with one another via Launch into Life YLW, a private Facebook group comprised of parents who support and share information and resources with one another. As well, plans are now underway for Sue and Teresa to facilitate a Launch into Life! workshop series in Salmon Arm, BC on October 1, 2016.
