Girls' Business & Boys' Business Information Sessions

These information sessions are for young people between 8-16 years with cognitive disability (including Intellectual Disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Acquired Brain Injury) and their parent/carer.

The session is aimed at the young person and provides parents and carers the opportunity to engage in conversations and activities with their young person around puberty.

All participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of disability and community educators and network with other young people and parents and carers in a supportive environment.
