Roundtable for Parents ( 10:30am to 12:00noon )
A roundtable discussion for parents hosted by Pine Tree Society's Case Management team.

The holidays: often a time of joy and connection. But they also can be a time of stress as changing routines and high expectations can take their toll. And for families of children with disabilities, there can often be more challenges due to high social demands, changes in routines, changes in diet and too little sleep. As families are come together, we can become acutely aware of our children s differing abilities, can feel pressure to conform and feel guilt or failure when we are not able to participate.
