Too often, parents are told that “real” friendships can’t happen for children with disabilities. This belief will only set them up to miss out!

In this session, Lisa from CRU will describe how her son Sean, who is now 29, began friendships at kindergarten and in Year 1 that are still going strong today.

She will discuss the approach and strategies used to nurture opportunities for friendships from Sean’s early years to school and beyond, and how these efforts have led to a rich, inclusive adult life.

 

Come along to explore:

  • How to match an ambitious vision with intentional action and investment over time
  • The importance of noticing ordinary opportunities for friendship
  • The early years strategies for helping your child make and keep friends
