WRFN Family Pulse - November 2018

November already!

In this issue of Family Pulse we decided to focus on how to talk about your child's diagnosis. Only you know your specific circumstances and the people in your circle, and only you can know what’s best to share and what’s best to keep private. 
That having been said, it can be very helpful for family and friends to understand your child’s needs and then are able to better support you and your child. 


You will also find information about:

  • WRFN Workshop: Creative Solutions and Supports for In Risk Students
  • Understanding High School for Students on the Autism Spectrum
  • Ask A Self-Advocate
  • One in Nine workshop
  • Coffee Club
  • Community events.
