Supporting Neurodivergent Children Through a Parent’s Cancer 

Title: Supporting Neurodivergent Children Through a Parent’s Cancer 

Date: Oct 12, 2023

Time: 10am PST/12CST/1EST

Speaker: Erin Thomson, LCSW and Senior Clinical Social Worker at University of Wisconsin – Madison, Waisman Center University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities

Description: We know kids process information and feelings  differently. Neurodivergent children or children with autism benefit from unique approaches and resources when a parent has cancer. Adding your own (or your partner’s) cancer diagnosis to the mix can be tricky for even the most seasoned of parents. This is an opportunity to talk about strategies for talking with your autistic and/or neurodivergent child about your cancer diagnosis and treatment. We’ll share some ideas and tools for starting the conversation and supporting you and your child as it evolves over time.  There will be plenty of time to talk through your questions and stumbling blocks, as well as any successes you’ve had along the way. SIGN UP

The event is finished.
