  • Together We Can Conference

    3000 E Grand Ave

    I know a few people who are planning on attending this. I did 2 years ago and was able to get some pretty good information from the event. I plant to go this year as well. They provide child care through Easter Seals, but you need to register ahead of time. Here is the link to the web-site to register. There are many different talks to attend. Just wanted to make everyone aware of this and hope to see you there! http://askresource.org/togetherwecan/

  • Special Egg Event

    Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center

    We are going to the Special Egg Event if anyone wants to join us. You need to preregister at the link below so they can prepare for each kid and their needs. We will be doing the magnetic egg hunt, but you can see there are several types. Hope to see some of you there! https://specialeggevent.com/

    Zombie Burger + Drink Lab

    Sorry I couldn't make it to Zombie Burger in February, but let's try again in March. I scheduled it during when many kids will be on Spring Break to give us parents who are staying in town a little break! Let's eat some good food and have a chance to get out of the house. Hopefully the weather will be better in March too! Hope to see you all there. As always, it is a very informal venue to share/listen about the special needs journey!

    Zombie Burger + Drink Lab

    I know we all feel like Zombies sometimes, so let's meet at Zombie Burger (the original East Village location) for the next sip and chat :-). The start time says 6:30 pm, but feel free to come a little later if that works. We are usually talking for 2-3 hours , so if you want to get the kids settled and come a little later, totally works. I will post my location within the restaurant when I get there. Hope to see you there! As always, if you want to bring your child, feel free to do so.

    Friedrichs Coffee

    Some have indicated that they want to come, but evenings didn't work for them. Let's try a weekend morning. Come chat and grab some coffee or tea. For those of you who are interested, but have never come, it is very informal. We just sit around and talk about the challenges and joys of special needs parenting. Share as much as you want, or just listen. Whatever you are comfortable with. Hope to see you there!

    Gateway Market Cafe

    This will be the last Sip and Chat I will plan for 2018! Others are welcome to organize one in December, but I know December is busy for everyone! Let's meet up and chat. I would like to pick everyone's brain about ideas for other events for next year. I started the group as it really helps me to talk with other Special Needs parents. Facebook is nice, but conversation is much more therapeutic for me! :-) Now that we have had a few chances to sit and chat, let's think about how we can make the group more active and inviting! I will buy some wine and apps for this one too! So if nothing else come for a free drink and food!
