Bio-Medical Approaches Study Group @ The Gathering Place
May 14 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Bio-Medical Study Group is a group of family and community members who find it inspiring, helpful, and personally rewarding to talk with each other about our own experiences and share new information all about optimal health, balance and well-being. We think about wellness in terms of food and nutrition, making sure sensory needs are met, figuring out mindful and conscious approaches, or looking at what recent research can tell us about medications, seizures, digestive issues and more.

Our conversation focuses on the whole person and how people may respond with more or less sensitivity to their environment, including diet and nutrition, brain coherence, sensory integration issues, the calmness or agitation of those around them, and more.

The group has been meeting monthly for over a year and is open and welcomes new participants! We typically meet at The Gathering Place (20-850 King St. W, Oshawa), the second Friday of each month at 10am.  Please RSVP your attendance to jklees@dafrs.com so that we can plan a successful morning.

Springing into Possibilities - a mini-series for families of children and youth @ Online via Zoom

Young Families are Springing Into Possibilities!  A New Workshop in Partnership with Extend-A-Family Toronto!

2020 was a challenging year in a great many ways, and for many families, 2021 still feels full of uncertainty and lost opportunities.

Join us this May-June for an online, interactive, 3-part mini-series, where we will come together to uncover and re-imagine what is still possible in our neighborhoods. Hear stories from other parents on how they have supported their loved ones with continued exploration, connection, and growth.

You will walk away from this series with the ideas, strategies, and the know-how knowledge you need to begin planning for a summer full of discovery, and inspiration for future possibilities.

See and share the full flyer here!
