Parenting a Child with ASD & Mental Health Needs (Kinark)
Many children with ASD also struggle with mental health challenges like constant worries, low mood, and overwhelming feelings of frustration. Your child may act in ways you don’t understand, and they may not be able to explain how they are feeling. When your child is unable to control their emotions or actions, you may feel helpless and you may not know where to start in providing support. This workshop will help you understand the overlap between ASD and mental health disorders, explore the ways that emotions can be both helpful and unhelpful, and learn how you can best support your child. This workshop is primarily geared towards parents with a child in elementary school, although much of the information shared is relevant for children of all ages.
