The Unplanned Journey: Parenting with Special Needs
March 11, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20.00
When parents receive a diagnosis for a young child, they often grieve the loss of the child they planned on raising, that “typical” child dancing in their head. When that dance stops, grief, often unacknowledged, sets in. Through this workshop we walk parents through these recurring cycles of grief, addressing the impact this has on family life. Even if you are “fighting and fixing,” every parent eventually needs help navigating this unplanned journey through grieving a child that still lives in your home.
Presented by Bonnie Bogen, MA, a passionate supporter of parents and families. She has 30 years of experience supporting families living with special needs in the following ways: a special education teacher, an autism specialist, a classroom consultant, and a parent group facilitator.
