On October 8th, the Resource Association in Special Education in District 102 (RAiSE) will host its first meeting of the RAiSE Parent Network (RPN). The topic of this meeting is Handling the Stress of Parenting Children with Special Needs and Learning Disabilities. If you’ve been feeling stressed out, alone, or overwhelmed in your efforts to get your child and family on track for the new school year, this is your chance to meet other parents who feel the same way. We will begin the evening with a group discussion, moderated by Teresa Fitzgerald, LMFT, a district parent and member of RAiSE. We will then break into small groups to network. Together we will explore problems and solutions, and share resources and ideas. This is an opportunity for parents to support other parents in a safe and confidential setting.
The meeting will be Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room of the La Grange Park Library, 555 N. La Grange Road **new location for RPN meetings**
Ms. Fitzgerald, LMFT is a psychotherapist in private practice in Oak Brook, IL and at the Child and Adolescent Clinic at the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute. She specializes in working with children, adolescents and their families.
All parents/guardians are invited to attend. If you would like to receive RAiSE emails about future meetings and speakers please send a request to RAiSE102@gmail.com.
