Copied from an email from Cathy Gilbert, AFABC (Adoptive Families Association of BC) – maybe of interest to people on the Island here.
This is a reminder that next Saturday (February 5th) there is a half day workshop on FASD and Secondary Disabilities to be held in Parksville. This workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Diane Russell and there will be time for question and answers at the end of the presentation as well as a chance to network with other families.
The cost for this workshop is $20 and includes muffins and coffee/tea. Registration begins at 9:00 and we expect to finish about 12:30.
If cost is an issue there are subsidies available.
You can pay at the door but please let me know by tomorrow (Monday, January 31st ) if you’d like to attend and I can send along more information.
