Raising a child with or without disabilities can be tough. We as caregivers need all the help we can get. There are various workshops held throughout the region of Hamilton-Wentworth, Ontario, some of which I have included here. Many workshops are offered through McMaster Children’s Hospital. The community education guide can be viewed at http://www.communityed.ca or call 905-521-2100 ext. 77243.
They offer courses, workshops and groups on a variety of topics, such as:
- Prenatal education
- Anxiety issues in children
- Teen issues
- Mental health
- Skill development
- Child safety
- Children and Youth with special needs
- Bedtime, Behaviour, Homework, Fear and Anger issues
The HWDSB (Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board) also presents workshops. Call 905-527-5092 for information.
