Parents and caregivers of children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may experience challenges with understanding and managing their child’s behavioural and emotional needs. Children with autism often struggle with emotional regulation and seeing your child in distress – whether it be an angry meltdown, tears of sadness, or constant worries – is hard!
Come chat with other parents and our psychologist about how to cope when your child has autism and mental health challenges. This session allows for an interactive experience for parents and caregivers to bring your questions related to autism and mental health. Some of the themes that may be discussed include how to support your child with ASD and mental health needs, understanding the assessment process, telling your child and/or others about a diagnosis, and available resources and strategies to support you and your child.
