Introducing The EDGE
We have an exciting announcement!
What is The EDGE?
We have an event coming up called The EDGE. EDGE stands for Experience, Discuss, Gain and Educate. The Edge will be an educational support group for all our families. Our first meeting will be on October 11, and we will be so excited to see you all there!
Thank you all so much for participating in our recent survey. You gave us an array of topics you all want to learn more about! So many topics, in fact, that our first meeting will be “Ask Me Anything.” We will have a whole panel of experts here, as well as experienced parents, to answer all of your questions! And if we can’t answer your questions, we will find someone who can!
Our First Meeting
In our survey, we also asked you when would be the best time for you to attend and an event like this, and Friday nights were the most popular option. This is perfect because it’s not a work or school night. At our first Friday meeting on October 11, we ask that you arrive at 7 pm. We’ll get started at 7:15 and we’ll finish around 8:45. We want you to have time to transition into the meeting with coffee and snacks, and we also want to make sure that you have plenty of time for Q&A afterward, and for talking with other parents. We want this to be a great opportunity for you to find other parents to network with and share ideas and experiences!
Childcare Will Be Provided
We are very sensitive to the fact that it’s hard for many of you to go to events out of the house. On the survey, most of you said that childcare would be very helpful. We heard you and we are going to offer childcare here! We have volunteers who have been training at our clinics and who have been with us for a while, who have had background checks, etc. They will be on hand to take care of the kiddos while you’re at the meeting. We will have a clinician supervising the children as well, but they will be right down the hall from you as you come to socialize and get your questions answered. We’ll make it a fun, free, sensory-filled time!
Whether you bring your children or you leave them at home, we do ask that you RSVP for this event. We ask that you do this so that we can know in advance what size of the room we will need for the event, and how many volunteers we will need on hand for childcare. You can RSVP by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling the office.
We hope to see you here and we hope you have a great and informative time! We have many more events planned for the future, so stay tuned!
