It was great to collaborate some online sessions with Recreational Respite and organize programming for our families in the FASD program. Great teaching for all age groups available and we look forward to running more programming.

I wanted to share how much we enjoy the programs for new experiences and friends. My son shared his special interest in construction with a facilitator and they created a program! He is looking forward to participating in STEM Mighty Machines this week. Thank you!
My son has tried one of the session – a dance one. He loved it. Dimitrios was kind and caring and patient. We were very impressed and happy for the support and opportunity to try something new. We have two sessions this week. We look forward to them!
Sarah has been loving the programs. She thinks its a great way to meet new people but with much less anxiety. She loves that she can do it from home where she feels comfortable but still able to learn and do cool new things. She thinks that the groups are good at making the material understandable to her comprehension level. She thinks it would be a cool idea to do a virtual group where there might be some singing, or a zumba like group. Overall, Sarah is absolutely loving these groups and talks about them nonstop. She is really hoping these continue as she looks forward to them daily.
We are really thankful for this program. Raquel struggles with communication so any chances she has to practice we consider it a good thing. She is a tough cookie to crack but we will keep pushing her to be involved because she really needs programs like this whether she agrees with us or not . It has been very important to her development socially. I think you guys are doing a great job offering this service during these ever changing times.
