Family Navigator Workshop 2018

The empowerment of caregivers is key to the quality of services children and youth with autism and other conditions receive. Family Navigators are professionals whose role is to empower families and enhance continuity of services they receive. Our workshop brings together key professionals from various community organizations across sectors (health, social services, education) who take on the role of Family Navigators. Our workshops build community capacity through knowledge exchange and professional development. The 2018 workshop theme is the intersection of autism and mental health.
