SOCH (South Asian Mental Health Resources)  and Autism Ontario presents “My Child’s Disability is Not My Fault” in Punjabi

Workshop Goal: Unlearning societal perceptions of disability.

This workshop will allow South Asian parents and caregivers of a child with autism to challenge cultural views on disability and reevaluate their perceptions of karma. Core themes of this workshop may include: exploring cultural and religious views on karma, societal perceptions of the gender-related “blame game” and strategies to unlearn societal perceptions of disability.
