- Live Zoom Session 3: Living and Committing to A Life You Value April 4th, 2023 5pm PT/ 6pm MT/ 7pm CT/ 8pm ET
A month prior to each live Zoom session, there will be pre-recorded content available to help prepare you and your sibling for the live session. If you’re not able to access this content before the live sessions, you can still join the live session.
If you miss a live session, no worries! The sessions will be recorded and available to view on your own time. Transcripts will also be available. Although we highly encourage you and your sibling to attend the live session, as it provides an opportunity to ask questions and connect with others in real-time.
Participate in all 3 topics or choose 1 or 2.
You do not need to participate in session 1 in order to participate in session 2 or 3.
Groups are welcome to participate, such as people who live together at a group home or people who attend community day services. Disability service providers can register and support groups to participate.
This project is a partnership of the Sibling Leadership Network and the Cognition Behavior and Mindfulness Clinic at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This program has been made possible through a grant from NEXT for AUTISM from the proceeds of the Color The Spectrum event.
