Inspiring Knowledge for Autism Parents
Presented by: Kitty Parlby
Date(s):
Saturday, September 22, 2018 | 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Session Location:
CARC 8 Page Avenue, Red Deer, AB
About the Session:

This workshop begins with learning about all the primary and associated symptoms of autism and very practical strategies, just like I share at teachers’ conventions. Wouldn’t it be nice to speak some of the same language as your child’s teacher? Think that only a few symptoms will be relevant to your family? Think again; symptoms could possibly change or emerge over time. There will be numerous chances to share your biggest challenges and strategies with each other. We will also learn about advocacy, family dynamics, self care, dual diagnoses and much more!

About the Presenter(s):
Kitty Parlby

In January of 2000, Kitty’s son was diagnosed with severe autism. She reacted strongly by educating herself to an extraordinary degree, with a combination of highly motivated study and daily hands-on experience with her son. Her journey evolved into providing autism workshops and presentations of many types throughout Alberta over the past 12 years. Her years as a special needs Educational Assistant provided Kitty with even more knowledge and experience. Kitty now has her own consulting and speaking business called AUTISM INSPIRATIONS. She has served a 5 year term on the board of governors for Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre in Red Deer, and currently serves as a director on the provincial board of the Autism Society of Alberta. Kitty is highly involved with supporting families and educators within the autism community, and has written many articles on various aspects of autism over the years.
