Tips on finding the best camp fit for your child
Kinark- Caregivers Converse Support Group - "Advice to my Younger Self"
Research has shown that caregivers of children with autism experience challenges that can lead to stress and isolation. Finding the time to care for your own physical and mental well being, meet others, and speak about your experiences can be challenging. Facilitated by our social worker, our caregiver support group aims to empower caregivers of children with autism by creating a safe space where you can share your experiences, as well as gain understanding and support from other caregivers with similar experiences.
