With Jill Farber, Executive Director of Autism Speaks Canada
and Esther Rhee, National Program Director of Autism Speaks Canada
We have a number of families in our community that have questions about parenting children on the autism spectrum. If you are a parent of a child with autism, a professional in the field, or just interested in the topic, please feel free to join us for this discussion. Some in the community have discussed turning this into an on-going discussion, including learning from parents with older children who have navigated their own versions of these parenting challenges. Please feel free to share this event with friends who would feel supported by this talk.
