Help for parents of special needs children

For parents of children with autism spectrum disorder or special needs it can be difficult to persevere alone. Lithgow Nanna’s Touch ASD Support is there to offer support to those parents, and prove that someone does care. Their mission is to keep the family unit running smoothly while giving help and understanding. Lithgow Nanna’s Touch ASD Support have regular Coffee/Chat Get-Togethers for parents to talk to one another, ask questions, get answers, and just have a bit of time out. Their next get-together is on May 13, between 10-12am, at the Lithgow Library, with guest speaker Dr Tracy Rhodes. Dr Tracy Rhodes is a specialist in complex childhood presentation and autism, with a particular interest in finding family based treatment for children with behavioural, emotional and developmental problems. Dr Rhodes is the founder of Brighter Futures, a Child, Adult and Family and Pediatric Clinic based in Blackheath, where she works alongside other Specialists to offer a range of therapeutic services. The clinic’s assessments and therapeutic interventions adopt a non-medical and evidence based approach that draws on the most advanced and innovative strategies in the field. Dr Rhodes talk at the Coffee/Chat Get- Together on May 13 will be followed by a Question and Answer session, in which all parents can get involved.
