Parent Support Workshops

The Social Work department has listened and are proud to present two exciting new initia-tives to introduce parents and caregivers to Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). We are happy to provide an opportunity for parents and caregivers to connect to one another, share information and resources and better understand Autism services in Toronto. These workshops are facilitated by Registered Social Workers at the Geneva Centre for Autism.

Please refer to the Parent Training Calendar for current information on Parent Support Workshops.

Navigating the Autism Services Maze

Trying to access the right services for your child can be overwhelming. In this workshop, parents and caregivers will be introduced to Autism Spec-trum Disorders (ASDs) with the aim of helping them navigate the services and programs within Toronto.
By the end of the workshop you will be able to:

  • Understand what Autism Spectrum Disorders are and how they are diag-nosed.
  • Start a system for organizing contacts, reports, and notes.
  • Begin intervention services including school intervention.

Parent Support Group

The parent support group offers a chance to meet and share information with other parents. The group will allow you the opportunity to discuss a new topic each month, which is important to parents of chil-dren with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). A special guest may be in attendance to answer questions.
