Tonight, Tuesday, December 6th at 7pm is the Parent Support group for parents of children with learning disabilities. Tonight is a meet and greet open house. This is a great opportunity to meet with parents who have met the challenges head on!
Wow, it is December already! December is a very busy month for all of us and it is also the last month before a brand new year. We have been busy at The Journey. There are many organizations that look to assist people in December, so we have been connecting community members up with dinners, food hampers, presents and events. We will of course soon be wrapping up our programming for the Christmas New Year’s break. And, we are working hard on our new year launch in Orenda Court. All of this to say, don’t get bogged down in the busyness of the season. Take some time to breath and to enjoy family, friends and the opportunities that are before you.
On Tuesday, December 6th the Parent Support Group for parents with children with learning disabilities will be meeting at The Journey at 7:00pm. This evening is a great opportunity to meet with other parents who have faced the challenges that can come when navigating the issues that arise for a child with a learning disability.
