About the event
Navigating the number and types of professionals in the world of autism can be lovely at times and quite challenging in others. This month, we will discuss things to do and things to avoid when advocating for yourself or your Autistic child. Everyone has their own experiences with what works and what doesn’t. Professionals include teachers, counselors, physicians, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, naturopaths, support workers and everything in between.In the professionals group, we will explore what works for each professional - what they wish individuals and parents knew works best and what puts obstacles in the way of ideal relationships with them.
In each parent group, we will explore what experiences each parent has had and discuss ways to either celebrate the successes and/or smooth over rough engagements parents and individuals are having specific to their age range
