We invite you to join Autism Ontario staff to discuss the support needs of parents and caregivers. This workshop will provide information on strategies for improving well-being and supporting with caregiver burnout. We will discuss self-care strategies, self-compassion, mindfulness, and the importance of finding joy. We will also discuss how caregivers can make connections and access informal and formal supports.  

This workshop is appropriate for parents and families of autistic children, youth, and adults, as well as professionals working with this population.
