Neurodiversity Family Support Night

✅  We need to know if you would attend June 5th if we proceed with planning the Neurodiversity Family Support night.

Even though we are offering great speakers and content, we sense families are getting overwhelmed with end of year graduations, finals, etc.  

✅Please help us by replying to this email:  
1)  "Yes, I will be there on June 5th
2)  "No, I cannot attend at this time"

Your responses are GREATLY APPRECIATED so we can plan accordingly for June 5th.  PLEASE, if your answer is "Yes", try your best to honor that answer. ...we would not want to waste our speaker's time or efforts to have the space available.

We WILL be starting again next fall on September 25th (every 4th Wednesday of the month). Stephanie Wagers, OT and owner of Connect-the-Dots will be sharing her new opportunity for each family to have access via personal on-line immediate assistance with best steps in helping yourself and your child through whatever big emotions are happening + all the other great options they are adding.

We appreciate any suggestions of topics or speakers for next year ... our sincere desire is to offer resources that help and uplift parents, educators and young adults to have calm and success along the path of raising kids (and themselves 😂)

Looking forward to hearing from EACH of you!!  Thank you very much!!
