Welcome to Journey to Independence!
Coffee Hour, a community-based program designed to support families who have recently received an autism diagnosis for their child. If you are a parent on the waiting list for therapy and seeking a community of peers to share experiences and insights with, then this program is for you.
Our aim is to provide a platform for parents to connect and support one another as they navigate the early stages of their child’s autism diagnosis. While we will not be offering clinical support, we will facilitate discussions on relevant topics that will help families build resilience, knowledge and understanding of the diagnosis and next steps.
We encourage active participation and hope to foster a supportive and safe environment where families can share their experiences, ideas and concerns with each other. Our sessions will be held once a week for an hour, with no more than 15 families per session.
Over seven sessions, we will cover key topics related to autism, such as understanding behavior that might challenge communication, language development, transitions, and how to avoid burn-out. Each family will be provided with a workbook to accompany the sessions, and videos of each session will be available for those who cannot attend in person.
We believe that consistent participation is essential for building a supportive community and seeing the benefits of this program. Therefore, we invite families to commit to all seven sessions. If we have a high level of interest, we may train additional professionals to run concurrent sessions in the future.
