Wishing all a Jolly July!

Our support group will NOT be meeting this month. However, the A Team coordinators will be meeting ‘behind the scenes’ to discuss the feedback and ideas that were provided at our last meeting, and to devise a plan for the upcoming year. We will then update our website with the dates and topics for September 2019- June 2020.

If you are interested in doing some summer reading, consider taking a look at our updated ‘recommended further reading‘  list.

June Updates!

This month, we put on our ‘thinking caps’ in our OPEN meeting. We brainstormed potential meeting topics for our next session of meetings (starting in September). We also discussed what went well with the group over the last 10 months and where there might have been room for improvement.

Notes from our last meeting (with Carol McMullen as our guest speaker) are posted on our website. Click the link to view.

Thank you to all!!

Have a great summer and hope to see you in September!

Welcome to Marvelous May!

We hope everyone is enjoying the Spring Weather!

FYI

There is a new building entry and exit protocol at KW Habilitation. From now on the front sliding doors will remain locked after 5 pm. This means that those attending future meetings  will have to enter through the side door (that we typically use as an exit). The door will be locked, but the facilitator will come down at 15 minute intervals to let people in. Otherwise, two cell phone numbers will be posted on the door. You may call/text one of those numbers to inform us that you are at the door and would like to be let in and one of us will come down to let you in right away.

A sign in/ sign out sheet will also be circulated during meetings. This is a procedure that the facility has requested we conduct at everyone of our upcoming meetings for the sake of accountability and safety.

Thank you for your cooperation!

 

Our Next meeting will be held on Thursday, May 16th, 2019 at our regular place and time. Carol McMullen will be our guest speaker. She will discuss Managing workplace stress. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

It’s Autism Awareness Month!

APRIL
IS AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH!

Yesterday (April 2nd) marked the 12th annual World Autism Awareness Day, designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007.

The day is intended to increase awareness and acceptance of neurodiversity.

But it doesn’t stop there! The entire month of April is dedicated to improving our communities’ understanding. So, we invite you to consider getting involved. You can become involved in many ways, including by wearing blue and discussing the topic of neurodiversity with your family, friends and colleagues to forward the mission.
