'Parent Voices': ASD Parent Support Group

'Parent Voices'
ASD Parent Support Group

Come and meet other parents of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. We will start off the morning with a guest speaker (a parent), who will share their experiences. The rest of the morning will be general discussion and sharing by all (a great way to pick up tips and ideas on resources for our kids), as well as a light snack.

The guest speaker each month is coming in not as an expert of any methodology, but as another parent with his or her own particular story to share.

Please register your attendance at intanmiranti@yahoo.com.sg or at 012 538 6134. Registration is absolutely necessary due to space limitations, and due to the possibility of last-minute changes. Limited to 20 parents per meeting. This event is for ADULTS only.
