Autism – We Care Workshop

Saturday 13 May @ 2:00 pm Saturday 27 May @ 4:00 pm AEST

An automated email will be sent with Zoom details. Please make sure to check your junk email.

An evidence-based program for parents/ caregivers who have a recently diagnosed child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, neurodevelopmental conditions or developmental delays

The time after a diagnosis can be challenging for families. You might have many unanswered questions relating to the diagnosis or in general. What does the future look like? What does this mean for my child? What does this mean for my family? What is the NDIS, and how can I best use NDIS best to help my child and look after my family’s quality of life?

Having concerns about your child’s development can have a significant impact on parents and all family members. It can impact the quality of life of everyone if timely support is not provided.

Come along to discuss and learn about:

  • The evidence-based resources and information about the diagnosis
  • How to set goals for your child that are meaningful
  • How to further understand your child’s diagnosis and gain additional support across various areas
  • How to navigate the NDIS and promote your child’s development and progress and a chance to talk to other parents and professionals
  • How to look after your well-being while you are looking after your child/ren

This session will also provide you with opportunities for chats with other parents and professionals who can help answer your questions related to Autism.
