    Raising Orchid Kids by SpeechKids

    Registration: Registration is required to participate in these sessions. To register, email an inquiry to info@speechkids.org

    Cost: Raising Orchard Kids recommends you spend $25 to $35 per meeting, if you have the means to do so. If you can spend more, Raising Orchard Kids would greatly appreciate it. 

    Raising Orchard Kids is hosting a parent support group for teens led by three professionals who are also parents of children with special needs. You can drop into any sessions you'd like, as it is a flexible group and not a class.

    Parenting a teenage child with special needs can be incredibly challenging. You may find yourself facing difficult questions, such as: How do I manage the anxiety of wondering how my child’s challenges will manifest on any given day? How can I prioritize self-care when meeting other’s needs feels overwhelming? How do I help my partner, friends and family understand my child’s challenges and needs? How can I find other parents on a similar journey for empathy and support? How do I prioritize different types of therapies for my child when time and resources are limited? How do I deal with all of these issues with the current social isolation of COVID?

The goal of the group is to help individuals with disabilities understand the importance of self-advocacy and empower them to speak out for themselves. Youth practice public speaking skills, plan social outings, learn from guest speakers on topics of life skills and advocacy, and projects to enhance social skills. 

    It’s a great opportunity to learn how to speak up for yourself and others and to socialize with other young adults. This is a great way to feel part of a group, even while social distancing for safety.
