Social Time!

Join our Family Support Workers for a social time that the whole family can enjoy!

Social Time is a fun and interactive way for families, parents and kids to connect virtually, discuss ongoing events or participate in different activities and crafts! Facilitated by our Family Support Workers, Kinark offers three types of groups to meet the needs of our children, youth, and their families.

Sessions for our Spring 2021 Social Time below!


Parent/Caregiver Social Time

Parent social time is designed for parents and caregivers of children and youth with autism. Sessions provide a safe space for parents to have virtual discussions about challenges they may face, questions they may have or just an opportunity to meet with other parents who can understand their day to day lives. Parenting strategies and experiences will be shared in each session.
