Letting In: Supporting 2SLGBTQ+ Autistic Youth – Foundational Family Services

In this 2 ½ hour workshop, participants will learn about the concept of “letting in” and how to respond when a child shares their gender identity and/or sexuality with them. Strategies for supporting a child in their letting-in journey will be discussed, which include how to prepare for conversations with the other adults in the child’s life.

As a result of participating in this workshop, participants will

  • recognize the impact of parental reaction to 2SLGBTQ+ youth sharing their identity
  • list the approaches for how to respond when their child discloses their identity
  • apply the strategies learned to navigate difficult conversations with other adults

Date: Wednesday, June 12, 2024
Time: 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Cost: No cost to participate

Note: When registering for this workshop, you will be prompted to choose an additional 1-hour Group Consultation to discuss scenarios as a group and become more familiar with the strategies taught in the workshop.
