    Parents & Carers Hub: Online / Phone Peer Meeting Discussion


    Due to the changing conditions with COVID-19, we have decided to move to an online meeting via a web-based application called Zoom. So let's come together online and have a general peer discussion to discuss how we've been managing, share ideas and concerns and ensure we find some calm in this situation. See below for more about what Zoom is. 

    This peer meeting is for parents, grandparents and carers (of a person with Aspergers or High Functioning Autism / ASD 1-2) to meet, share their experiences and support eachother. We have a range of parents who attend, who have children of varying ages from toddlers through to young adults. The group is facilitated to allow opportunity for all attendees to talk if they wish. Attendance varies from month to month and it's great to talk to others who have been through similar challenges.  

    Cost:  $5 AV Members, $10  Please book and pay online before attending, You will receive the link to join the meeting when your payment is done and you will receive a Event Confirmed email containing this link. 

    Discussion  Topic:

    Coping with new challenges of online schooling and social isolation for ourselves and our families.
