Parent Support Program October 2013 Flyer

This is your invitation to attend the final of our four Parent Support Evenings in 2013.  These closed door evenings are designed to provide you with strategies to support your child’s learning in their Drama for Everyday Life Program and address issues many parents face. 

Tuesday, 8 October at 7.30pm. 

Box Hill Community Arts Centre, Drycraft East, 470 Station St, Box Hill.  

Having a child with Aspergers / on the autism spectrum can lead to increased expenses as families do their best to support and educate their children. Assessments, diagnostic sessions, therapies, interventions, drama and social skills classes all add up, and forms of fee relief or funding assistance can be hard to find.

Through research and interviews for her book The Hidden Diffability: Discovering Aspergers, personal experience and her volunteer work at Aspergers Victoria, Lyndel Kennedy has discovered many ways of accessing fee relief and rebates for families with children on the autism spectrum.

At this presentation Lyndel will outline at least 10 sources of funding to help parents with the ongoing costs of raising a child on the autism spectrum.  There will also be the opportunity to network with other parents so you can share strategies and ideas to support the whole family.

Lyndel Kennedy is a writer, researcher, editor and mother of three, including a teenager with Aspergers. She volunteers for Asperger Victoria as vice president, parent support group leader and website curator. The Hidden Diffability: Discovering Aspergers is her first book in a series of three.



Cost: Complimentary for Parents of Current Students Only. For other interested parents and professionals, the session is $97.

The presentation will go for a total of 1 hour, including small group discussion time and question time.
