Managing Everyday Life

A series of workshops about managing everyday life for parents, carers, families, personal assistants, teaching assistants or teachers of children with special needs and/or disabilities.

About the workshops:

Sometimes everyday life can be difficult when you have a child with special needs in the family or in school. This series of informative, interactive and enjoyable workshops aims to bring people together to discuss strategies and share ideas for making life more manageable. There are four workshops over 4 weeks covering different topics, and each will run on  Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm. They will take place in Meeting Room 2 at Kings Church Lewes, near Tesco's - there is parking there.
