Is your child a picky eater? Are mealtimes difficult for you? Is your child resistive to trying new foods? If you answered yes to these questions, this parent resource night is for you. This presentation will provide participants with information on how to make mealtimes more successful, suggestions for introducing new foods and learning how sensory impacts your child’s eating. We’ll have a discussion time during the presentation for parents to collaborate on issues that impact their child at home, what seems to work for them and what stores and brands are good for kids with GFCF diets.
Partners Resource Night is a free training opportunity for parents, caregivers, professionals, and others. This event is designed to provide participants with the tools necessary to manage situations they encounter with children. This is an interactive and informative opportunity to learn more about autism spectrum disorder and its impact on children and their families.
Prior to the presentation, we host a social hour from 5:30pm- 6:30pm. Parents, family members, professionals, and Partners’ staff are encouraged to mingle and meet others who have a connection to autism. One of the great benefits to attending Partners Resource Night is sharing experiences among families and caregivers.
Partners Resource Night is an exciting, supportive, relative, and educational experience for all who attend. These evenings will be informal and enjoyable and we encourage everyone to participate. Childcare is not provided for these events. If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
