I found out there's going to be a free workshop in Ottawa on Saturday, April 26th (9-5) at the Southway Hotel on Bank Street.
It's sponsored by Quickstart and it's to provide strategies for parents/caregivers to help their children and help to connect parents in a support network.
Here's the list of presenters and topics:
Dr. Yolanda Korneluk, psychologist - Introduction to autism and child development, Managing challenging behaviours.
Dr. Robin Gaines, speech pathologist - Strategies to promote communication
Veronique Chiasson, occupational therapist - Connect with your child through play and everyday activities
Panel Discussion: Q&A with the audience
To register, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and include your child's name, date of birth and your contact information (name, email and phone number). There's limited space so I'd recommend signing up quickly if you're interested.
