Cocktails & Bureaucracy Raising a Self-Advocate

Amy Gravino, who herself has Autism and is a national public speaker, author, and autism consultant, will join us this month to discuss tips and strategies for building your child’s self advocacy skills. She will describe, from her own experiences, best practices for helping children to build such skills as: confidence in communicating their needs, setting clear boundaries and staying safe, and becoming a part of the decision making process for their school and social life.

Location: Freddy's Bar (back room), 627 5th Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11215

Join us for a Saturday morning parent workshop at the Ridgewood Space to discuss the services available to families with children with disabilities. These seasonal events will be led by professionals in the disability community and disabled adults, with the goal to provide a better understanding to the NYC services system, and what it means to grow up with a disability and flourish.

Queens Parents Workshop Benefits & Entitlements with Gary Shulman Ms. Ed.

We will explore governmental and non-governmental support services, benefits and entitlements.

This monthly group, loosely lead by Extreme Kids & Crew’s Executive Director, is available to parents whose children are participating in KEEN New York's basketball program in Brooklyn. Head out for some much deserved respite time, or stick around nearby with fellow parents and chat. Discussion topics are meant to connect and support, or simply entertain. The group will decide the structure, or lack thereof. Coffee, lots of coffee, will be provided.

Next Event: April 8, 10:00-11:00am

Sign up for KEEN New York's Brooklyn basketball program to receive an invitation to Coffee & Conversation.

Extreme Kids & Crew is currently taking applications for Powerful Parents, a FREE six-week series for parents of kids with disabilities beginning this April.
