September parent support meeting: Westbrook

Join Us……
Parent Support Group Meeting
Wednesday, Sept. 6 (7-9 p.m.) 
Family Futures Resource Network — Westbrook branch

25 Fairway Dr. (South of the Whitemud on 119 Street) — Click here for Google Maps

Hi everyone! We hope you had a great summer, and were able to enjoy some downtime with your families, or get away from it all.

Now that you’re getting back in the swing of your routine, please join us this Wednesday for our monthly parent support meeting, at our new location. We are once again at the Westbrook branch of Family Futures Resource Network. Unlike our old location in the west end, there is ample free parking, and it’s just off the Whitemud on 119 St. Please check the location on Google Maps here.

This is a roundtable discussion, in a welcoming, non-judgmental setting. Everyone will get a chance, if they choose, to offer a topic or raise an issue in the discussion.

Come share your experiences with other parents of ADHD children.

Not too late for LD Edmonton summer programs


​Does your child struggle with managing their emotions or making social connections? LD Edmonton’s Camp Abilities and Teen Camp Abilities programs are structured for kids ages 8-18** who are struggling with keeping friends and interacting with their peers. Participants will learn social skills in a safe setting in the morning and then practice what they have learned out in the community in the afternoon. Some families are able to obtain FSCD (Family Support for Children with Disabilities) funding for their child to attend camp depending on the determined needs of their child. Contact your FSCD worker to see if your child qualifies.

Children ages 8 and 12 years old
August 21st – 25th
Daily 9:30 am to 3:00 pm

Teen Camp Abilities – Teens ages 13 to 18
August 14 to August 18
Daily 9:30 am to 3:00 pm
