Kalparrin’s free, online Connect & Learn Peer Support Program is for parents and carers raising children with similar diagnoses, ages and/or developmental stages.
These eight-week programs, run regularly in line with the school term. Expert guest speakers provide information and guidance on a host of topics of specific importance and relevance to the group such as:
NDIS | Sibling support | Support for carers | Managing challenging behaviours | Advocating for your child | Puberty and sexuality | Education | Emergency care planning | Grief.
Groups meet online each week with an opportunity to meet face-to-face at an informal social event, organised by Kalparrin, towards the end of the program that further enables parents to develop ongoing relationships and networks once the program has concluded.
