ASD Parent Support Group with Guest Speaker Marie Byrne 29.11.23
This Support group is for parents of primary and post-primary children with Autism. The aim of the group is to provide support, share ideas and a platform for parents to ask questions. Please note, this webinar is for parents only and will deal with the Theory of ASD from a parenting perspective and not a school perspective. Therefore, we would appreciate if SNA /Teachers did not book a place on this support webinar. This group will meet every 4/6 weeks.
