Navigating the Unplanned Journey for Families of Children with Sensory Diversity
Parenting children who have sensory access diversity can be an unfamiliar and complex experience. Families can benefit from a community of supports, including both professionals and other families of children who are blind, partially sighted, Deaf or hard of hearing. Counselling Services, through APSEA Connect adult learning, invites you to connect with other families to share lived experiences, strategies, and resources for navigating life. This first session will introduce topics such as: self-identity, self-disclosure, advocacy, grief and loss, and transition.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- meet APSEA counsellors
- meet and connect with other parents and adult family members of children who are blind, partially sighted, Deaf or hard of hearing
- share their lived experiences and their journey from initial identification to present
- Parents, caregivers, and adult family members of the students who qualify for APSEA support
- Janice MacPhail, Counsellor
- Brian Yee, Social Worker
- Lisa Jenkins, Counsellor
