Workshop planned for Edmonton parents

December 5, 2017 by  

Parents of children who have developmental, physical or cognitive challenges can often find themselves worried about their son or daughter’s future, and an Edmonton event has been planned to help give them peace of mind.

A series of four workshops will explore the various options and supports that exist in the community to help ease the transition into adulthood. Those who participate will have an opportunity to learn more about how they can support their child or children and make the process easier.

Gateway Association will be both organizing and facilitating the seminars, and everyone who has a youth between the ages of 14 to 25 in their household who has a disability is welcome. The is no admission price being charged, and there is plenty of free parking on site. The workshops will run for approximately two and a half hours each, and beverages will be provided. Anyone who wishes to bring along a bite to eat if invited to do so. Brochures from local community support agencies and other local supports can be provided for an event like this by a print company.

The series of seminars will begin on January 22, 2018, and after that, they will take place on January 29 and also February 5 and 12. Those who wish to participate are reminded that they will receive the most benefit if they attend all four.

The workshops will be held at 10941 – 120 Street, and further details can be found on the organizer’s website.
