Online: Positive Parenting in the Time of Covid

April 16 @ 6:30 PM 7:30 PM

We are very excited to be partnering with Dr. Iyama-Kurtycz to offer two webinars for families, individuals with autism, and the community! In this first webinar, Dr. Iyama-Kurtycz will talk briefly about the very difficult, but even more essential task of positive parenting under stressful times. She will cover self-care, some basic rules for parenting children with ASD, and how to set children up to be successful by knowing what we realistically can expect at any given moment. She will try to talk about specific topics parents raised upon registration, and there will be plenty of time for questions after the talk.

Please RSVP below so we can send you a zoom invite to the webinar, and so you can submit questions for the session. We will be sending out zoom invites the day before the webinar, so please register before then.

This is the first of two free Autism Awareness month webinars with Dr Iyama-Kurtycz we are offering this month. On April 30th Dr. Iyama-Kurtycz will be doing her second webinar, about neurodiversity.
