KIT will be taking place twice in August! Thursday, August 10 & Monday, August 21 from 7-9pm.

 

KIT “Keeping it Together” Mom’s Self-Care Group.

Keeping It Together (KIT) is a “self-care support group” specifically for moms of loved ones with ASD of all ages (toddlers, children, teens and adult children). Consider this your “girls night out” and get together with other moms who go through the same challenges, obstacles and share the simplest of wins. Let’s experience who we are as women not someone’s Mom or wife. We listen, understand and accept. The majority of the evening is focused on self-care through interactive presentations. We empower ourselves and each other. Please bring your journal. If you are new to the group a personal journal will be gifted to you.

I Have Autism

"I have Autism. I may not look unusual, but I experience the world much differently than you do. Autism makes it difficult for me to communicate with you, and sometimes causes me to have unusual behaviour. I am doing my very best. Please be patient with me and my caregivers, who are trying to give me a full and happy life."
