The ADHD & Asperger's Centre is hosting a 5 session class, "Parents of Kids with ADHD & Asperger's/ASD."
Join with ADHD and Asperger's experts and other parents/caregivers of kids of all ages with ADHD and/or Asperger's to get your questions answered, support from people who've been there, and a hopeful perspective on your child's future. The ADHD & Asperger's Centre sees ADHD and Asperger's as a gift and focus on managing the negative symptoms while helping to find and harness the amazing super powers of our kids (like high intelligence, creativity, kindness, and hyper-focusing).
Part workshop, part support group, these sessions have been described as "self-care I badly needed", "a safe place to not feel guilty, for once!", and "incredibly informative". Refreshments and snacks are also offered.
Topics are voted on at the beginning of each course. Topics often discussed include:
This group will run September 11 to October 9 from 6:00-7:30pm.
