About the event
Synergy Autism Parent Groups are online meetings full of connection with other parents with similar aged children as well as expert guidance for common issues and needs associated with Autism.
This is an excellent option for parents seeking support in a small group format.
Each month, Barb brings a topic for discussion to start out the conversations then weaves in recommendations based on participants particular needs. The sessions are offered in a conversational style.
Barb knows that each parent is an expert not only in their own child but has so much to share with others. It is through the collective process that we all learn and thrive.
This month's topic: Working with professionals
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
We meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month for 1.5 hours.
