Kids At Max provides a range of parent information sessions and workshops that are facilitated by a psychologist, speech pathologist or occupational therapist depending on the specific area being addressed. We are committed to equipping and supporting parents to best support their child. Our team has experience working with kids, teens and families around a range of issues and provide a family-centred approach in therapy. This same approach extends to our parent workshops which are specifically designed to empower and equip parents to better understand their child’s individual needs and to walk away with more tools to support their child or teen.
Our workshops use current, evidence-based information, materials and practical resources to support you to build on your current level of knowledge and skill level. Depending on the area, workshops can be 1-3 sessions in length and are generally conducted after-hours to accommodate availability. You will walk away from our workshops with a better understanding of your child as well as strategies that you can implement at home. Parent workshops are also a great opportunity to meet with other parents who are parenting a child with similar needs. Parent workshops typically cater to up to 12 families at at time and are informally led so that you can feel comfortable to ask questions specific to your needs.
