The Waterloo Region FASD Action Group is pleased to announce the launch of a new Parent/Caregiver FASD Support Group that is being offered by Lutherwood.
Parents and caregivers of children with FASD often experience some degree of social isolation caused by a lack of understanding of their child’s disability from family, educators, health, and social service providers. The goal of the Parent/Caregiver FASD Support Group is to provide a forum for parents and caregivers to support and learn from one another, to share knowledge, and to build skills in order to improve outcomes for children with FASD and their families.
The Parent/Caregiver FASD Support Group will be co-facilitated by actual parents and caregivers in order to draw upon their own experiences and expertise while discussing a wide-range of topics that are relevant to rearing a child with an FASD. Monthly sessions will be offered from September through March, each lasting 2 hours in duration with dinner provided.
