Autism 205: Parenting in the “New Normal” (ONLINE Only)
May 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Autism 205: Parenting in the “New Normal,” a panel discussion facilitated by Jennifer St. Cyr, MSW, parent group facilitator. This month’s Autism 200 lecture will be available through Facebook Live on Seattle Children’s and Seattle Children’s Autism Center Facebook pages and through WebEx.
Being an effective ally for youth with autism is never more important than right now. Parents are searching for ways to communicate effectively with their child and help support them. Providers and community stakeholders are struggling to find ways to overcome barriers to services. It is a challenging time but, as we know, families from the autism community possess incredible resilience.
Join us to hear perspectives from our speakers, some autistic and some non-autistic, about how we can be the best possible allies for kids, teens and young adults at this critical time. Panelists are Hodan Mohammed, program manager; Celeste Rashaan, community organizer; ChrisTiana ObeySumner, intersectional justice advocate; Ben Wahl, program founder; Shayla Collins, mindfulness coach; and Jay Pierce, teen self-advocate.
Time will be reserved for questions and discussion at the end of the lecture. Questions can be submitted through the comments on Facebook Live.
Due to the reasonable caution surrounding reducing the spread of COVID-19, this month’s Autism 200 lecture will be only available online. Join us via Facebook Live or through the teleconferencing application, WebEx. Please note that there will be no in-person attendance at Autism 200 this month and anyone coming to the hospital will not be permitted entrance to this class. Thanks to everyone for your understanding. Further announcements regarding future Autism 200 lectures will be forthcoming.
