Family Education

Why does my Teen behave that way?' To help parents understand how much of their teen's behaviour is just 'typical teen stuff' versus how much may be a function of an acquired brain injury (ABI), Family Support Service (in conjunction with the Life Skills and Wellness Institute) is pleased to offer a "Parenting Adolescents with ABI" workshop series. In a friendly, fun and interactive series of sessions, parents will develop their own skills that will help launch their teens towards adulthood.

To find out more, read the attached brochure and then call Val Lusted, Social Worker @ (416)425-6220, ext. 3694.
