Parenting an amazing individual with ASD? Sure there are incredible joys. But dealing with everything from meltdowns to therapies to meetings can wear you down. Especially over the long run. Time for a workshop to focus on YOU!
The happier and healthier you are, the more energy you have for your family. You’ll learn how to:
- improve your health, mood and energy
- strengthen friendships
- increase your family’s supports (with no costs and no waiting lists).
This workshop is high-energy, interactive and practical. Learn strategies based on current wellness research and on family success stories. Come out to share your experiences, learn new tips and make new connections.
