Starting the Journey for Tweens and Teens – November – March 2024
December 13, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Your child or teen has received an autism diagnosis. Now what? For many parents and family caregivers, what comes next is a whirlwind of meetings, paperwork, research, decisions, and worry about what their loved one’s future will look like. We may feel fear, anger, and grief. Does this make us bad parents? No – it makes us human.
This group is for parents and family caregivers of children and teens ages 8-18, who have a recent diagnosis of autism. The group is facilitated by YSSN’s Family Peer Mentors, who have felt all the feelings and are ready to listen and share, as well as a Foundational Family Service Worker, who will be on hand to answer your questions about funding and services. This judgement-free space is a chance to ask questions and connect with other families.
