A New Normal: Supporting Families with Children who have Disabilities

Tuesday, October 15, 2019, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Having a child with a disability means negotiating systems that add significant stress for families- and often learning a new normal in your day-to-day.  Families for whom extra is required may need extra support.

This workshop will provide an opportunity for family members to reflect on some of the gifts and challenges their family experiences in the world, and to create strategies to support each other and the well-being of the family.  This workshop is for personal growth, is open to all, and does not earn professional CEUs.


Fee: $65, includes light refreshments.  A limited number of partial scholarships are available.
