Programs for Parents/Carers
Gold Foundation delivers workshops for Parents & Carers:
The Gold Foundation facilitates Educational Seminars for Parents, Carers and Family members of young people with Asperger syndrome.
Delivered by Professional Presenters, these seminars can support families to not feel ‘alone’ in the sometimes-isolating world of Asperger’s. The seminars provide knowledge, skills and educational information to assist families in their caring role. Meeting and talking with other families going through similar situations can be extremely beneficial.
‘Let’s get practical and explore achievable ideas, increasingly seen in ‘good’ schools, to build the functioning and wellbeing of kids on the spectrum.
What makes kids with ASD so interesting and tricky to support, is that their personalities, patterns of behaviours and issues vary widely – a ‘one size fits all’ approach just doesn’t exist! There’s not a ‘typical treatment’ for kids with Asperger syndrome that will guarantee great outcomes every time. To make school work for our kids, educators have to learn how they “tick”, and that takes commitment to building a relationship with them. When this happens, clever educators can start to capitalise on strengths and gradually steer intrinsic problematic behaviours in more productive directions.
As we hone our understandings and management options around our kids with Asperger Syndrome, we develop exceptional practices that allow schools – and communities – to become better places for everyone’ Mark Le Messurier, marklemessurier.com.au
