Social Time!

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

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.

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.

Let’s talk back to school! Adjusting to going back to school can impact every family. This session will discuss how the transition back to school (in person or online) has been for families.

We all know that we can rely on family members for support, but sometimes it’s hard to explain what you are going through. This session will discuss family dynamics and allow for others to share experiences.
