Free Spanish Autism Support Group Cafe con Daysi

December 9 @ 4:30 pm 6:00 pm CST

Join Daysi and other parents who are experiencing the strengths and struggles of raising a child with autism. This group provides an opportunity to Latino families to be able to network with others that speak their language and understand what parents/caregivers are going through. Her hope for this group is to provide a place to share personal feelings, strategies and support to families to learn how to access available community resources that can help the family.

Facilitator Daysi Jiménez is a proud autism mom and has been facilitating connections with autism families in the Hispanic community in the Milwaukee area for over 20 years. She serves as a parent representative on the Governor’s Autism Council.

Únase a Daysi y a otros padres que viven los grandes momentos y los esfuerzos de criar a un niño con autismo. Este grupo brinda la oportunidad a las familias latinas de poder unirse con otras personas que hablen su idioma y comprender por lo que están pasando los padres y cuidadores. La Sra. Jiménez espera que este grupo sea un lugar donde las familias puedan compartir sentimientos personales, estrategias y apoyo, para que sepan cómo acceder a los recursos de la comunidad que están disponibles y que pueden ayudarlas.

La facilitadora, Daysi Jiménez, es una madre orgullosa de un niño con autismo y ha servido como nexo entre las familias con niños con autismo en la comunidad hispana en el área de Milwaukee por más de 20 años. Es representante de padres en el Consejo sobre autismo del gobernador (Governor’s Autism Council).
