Event description

Description

As a parent, I watch my daughter face the world each day with courage. She is not a "neuro-typical" child. She has higher needs and I needed higher understanding. I have been blessed to see her slowly and increasingly grow into who she is meant to be. With that, I have learned from various professionals about her view of the world and how I can help see it with her. This workshop is parents and educators of our "spirited" rockstars, our "wild"'ones, our "silent thinkers", our "quiet geniuses", our "booksmart" young people. Whether they are 6 or 16, our local esteemed speakers will provide insight into different perspectives and local resources available to help understand how we need to help and support children with higher needs especially around emotions and self-regulation and self-advocacy and all from people right here at home!

You may learn one thing or many things! This is a full day of learning, sharing, peer-connecting as we learn how to support our superheroes!
