ASD Nest Support Family Workshop

ASD Nest Support Project is having a Family Workshop on January 28th 7:00 - 8:30pm.
 
Over the course of the pandemic, Nest families have persevered and developed an entirely new set of survival skills. During this family workshop we will hear from Lucy Antione and her son Dylan Dufour about how they handled the unique challenges we are all facing.
In addition, we will be joined by a panel of Nest families from across the city who will be sharing their own "tricks of the trade" for blended learning and perseverance.
