All parents need support from time to time. Just knowing you are not alone can make a huge difference. Pine Tree Society offers a variety of opportunities for parents to connect and learn.
Our Roundtable Discussions are the perfect way to meet with other parents facing similar challenges. Topics range from IEP development and preparing for the summer to transition planning and guardianship. Coming together around a topic of mutual interest allows parents to not only learn, but share and help each other. The relaxed, small group format is facilitated by Pine Tree Society staff or an expert from a partnering organization.
The Southern Maine Autism Conference co-hosted each spring by Pine Tree Society and Spurwink. The conference is designed to provide an opportunity for parents to connect and learn. Attendees leave with practical tools and strategies that can be implemented immediately in the home, school and community. Attendees meet others who understand and many of them stay connected with each beyond the end of the day.
