Event description

Description

“I am so excited to start workshops in Medicine Hat. My family and I have recently moved back and this is our third time in the city! Third time is the charm right? My husband and I met in college here, not knowing anyone and now work has brought us back two more times. We started our family in Fort McMurray and began navigating the medical system to reach a diagnosis at age 3 in Medicine Hat. My journey and passion coninutes to involve supporting families in many capacities in this rollercaster called life. I am excited to connect and share with parents alike. I hope that many will join in the day filled with realism, hope and laughter.”

I am offereing the same workshop 2 different times a month to help give parents the access to this education they need.

See the Child Before the Disability.

For all of us, our children are the light of our world. When having a child that has a disbality it is easy for that to take over. Life becomes complicated, exhaustion sets in, top priorities line up fast and the simple joyous things can be forgotten. I want to help guide clinicians, professionals and families to a space where you are able to see the child before the disability. How can we embrace the beauty and the beast of what we have been given and live with joyous connection? Let us learn how to advocate for our children and encourage them to advocate for themselves.
