Ask a Psychologist (Kinark)
Parents and caregivers of children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may experience challenges when understanding and managing their child’s behavioural and emotional needs. Children with ASD often struggle with emotional regulation and seeing your child in distress from an angry meltdown, tears of sadness or constant worries can be hard! Come chat with other parents and our psychologist about how to cope when your child has ASD and mental health challenges. This session allows for an interactive experience for parents and caregivers to bring your questions related to ASD and mental health. We will discuss how to support your child, help you understand the assessment process, how to tell your child and/or others about a diagnosis and available resources and strategies to support you and your child.
