Kalparrin’s free, online Connect & Learn Peer Support Program is for parents and carers raising children with similar diagnoses, ages and/or at 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:
- Sibling support
- Support for carers
- Managing challenging behaviours
- Advocating for your child
- Puberty and sexuality
- Emergency care planning
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 and enabling parents to develop ongoing relationships and networks once the program has concluded.
