Victoria Area Parent 2 Parent Resource Network
This Month's Guest Speaker: Brooken Sayers, Occupational Therapist.
Welcome to our group in Victoria B.C.! Please come and join us at our monthly parent meetings which will range from themed parent discussions, guest speakers and videoconferencing with guest speakers in Vancouver. We aim to learn from each other and to find out more about caring for our special children -let's navigate the world of rare disease together. New parents always welcome.
Guest Speaker: Brooken Sayers, Occupational Therapist
Brooken has been practicing as a pediatric occupational therapist since 2001. She has worked with individuals from infancy through twenty-one years of age in a variety of treatment settings, including school-based intervention, private practice, hospital and developmental centres. Her research interests include the development of self-regulation skills and how to foster resilience, emotional regulation and flexible thinking in kids. Brooken's favourite part of being an occupational therapist is the problem-solving element of her work. She loves the fact that each child brings their own unmatched set of skills, supports and perspectives. This endless variety ensures there is always a novel challenge and unique solution to explore.
The first half of the evening will be dedicated to the above speaker and the second half of the meeting will be open for discussions.
As it is really helpful for us to have an idea of who is able to attend, we would really appreciate people RSVPing to Jocelyn(email:Jocelyn.CarterSim@viha.ca) by Tuesday morning the day of the meeting. We understand that life happens and we won't hold you to coming but we like to have a sense for food and drinks as to who will likely be attending. Thank you in advance. :) This has been helpful in the past so really appreciate all those who respond.
Light refreshments will be provided at the meeting.
Our next meeting is scheduled for February 13, 2018.
New parents are always welcome. Drop-ins are welcome.
