This group provides the opportunity for parents to discuss issues that affect boys on the Asperger/Autism spectrum as they enter puberty. We’ll share our experiences and brainstorm helpful resources and strategies.
Topics may include:
- Helping our sons navigate tween/teen friendships.
- Helping our sons manage their strong emotions.
- Helping them make choices that promote physical and psychological safety.
- Reinforcing their sense of self-esteem at a challenging time.
Support group series consists of eight Mondays. You must register for the entire series.
Facilitator: Stephanie Loo, M.Ed
