Mar 30 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Parent to Parent’s Renew, Connect & Reflect workshop will help you and other families caring for a child with a disability or health impairment on their parenting journey, providing renewed energy, new connections and new ideas.

Workshop topics include:

  • Growing your support networks

It is a great opportunity to reflect on how far you have come and connect with other parents in your area.
