Unicorn Children’s Foundation to Host a Series of Chats for Parent of Children and Adults with Special Needs
Boca Raton FL – May 28, 2020 – The Unicorn Children’s Foundation is delighted to announce weekly parent chats for parents of children and adults with special needs. While the burdens of educating your children are lifted as the school year ends, there is still a need to stay connected. These parent chats will provide an informal opportunity for parents of similar-aged children to socialize, share challenges, and exchange tips and strategies.
These programs are an addition to the virtual Unicorn Connection Center’s support and resource offerings for people with special needs and their families by providing access to information, guidance, learning, and social opportunities. Sharon Alexander, CEO of Unicorn Children’s Foundation, states “We recognize that often we learn best from others with lived experience.” These parent chats will be moderated by individuals with expertise in special needs and special education. If needed, subject matter experts may be brought in as guest speakers to address more specific concerns and questions.
•Pre-K (2-5 years of age) meets weekly on Thursdays from 12-1pm beginning June 4. •Elementary (6-10 years of age) meets weekly on Mondays from 5:30-6:30pm beginning June 1. •Pre-Teens (11-13 years of age) meets weekly on Mondays from 6:30-7:30pm beginning June 1. •Transitioning Youth and Emerging Adults (14-22 years of age) meets weekly on Sundays from 5:30-6:30pm beginning June 7. •Adults (23 years of age and up) meets weekly on Sundays from 6:30-7:30pm beginning June 7.
