Our on-line workshop series was created to allow parents to access information, strategies and support for their children in a way that is convenient for them. Hectic lifestyles make it difficult to commit to attending in person classes and reading books or websites can leave a person feeling like they’re alone. On-line learning options provide flexibility by being open 24/7. If desired, a parent can revisit the same content multiple times. It also allows parents the ability to access information when it’s convenient for them and also to engage with others if they want. All participants are invited to visit our Virtual Café and share strategies that have worked for their child and/or comment on a Discussion Question related specifically to the workshop topic.
