Event description

Have you been feeling isolated and overwhelmed? Has your relationship with your child become disconnected or challenging? 

Reframing Autism’s Parent Mentoring Group is a supportive space where parents who are navigating the unique journey of raising Autistic children can find understanding and belonging. Led by two warm and empathetic facilitators, one who is Autistic herself and both of whom are parents of Autistic children, you will find a nurturing environment to expand your parenting toolkit and a community of parents who understand and hold space for your experiences and emotions. 

Over four fortnightly Zoom sessions, we will explore various aspects of parenting Autistic children, offering insights and strategies to support you to navigate life together, from enhancing your own self-regulation to understanding your child's unique sensory needs. The sessions will help you to feel less isolated, connect with others who share your experiences, and support you in building a resilient and connected relationship with your child. 

Feel heard, understood, and supportedJoin us at the next Parent Mentoring Group and feel empowered to live a neuroaffirming life where your whole family can thrive.
