Parent Support Group

June 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Description and Objectives

The Parent Support Group is a new program offered at the Centre for Literacy. Participants from the Parenting a Child with Learning Disabilities/Disorders workshop asked that the Parent Support Group be established. As active participants in the Parenting a Child Workshop, they wanted to keep the conversation and mutual support going. The purpose of the Parent Support Group is for parents (or caregivers) to help each other.  Specific topics will be identified for discussion at each of the group sessions. The group will either be led by a parent or trained facilitator.

More information about the topics to be addressed at the Parent Support Group will be added in the weeks to come.

Target Population

Parents, caregivers and grandparents of children with learning disabilities, and other possible co-existing conditions, who wish to gain support from and mutually help others in a similar situation.

Program Staff

Efforts are currently underway to seek a volunteer who can act in the role of facilitator.

Size

It is anticipated that the size of the group will change based on the availability of individuals to attend and the topic under discussion. It is anticipated that the group will not exceed 10 individuals, including the facilitator.
