Connect Group: Neurodiversity, disability, and childhood cancer

Cancer brings many challenges, and they can be even more difficult to manage if one of your children is neurodiverse or has a disability.

Whether your child also has cancer or has a sibling with cancer, this Connect Group is a chance to meet other parents, guardians, and carers in a similar situation. 

With two Redkite Social Workers there to guide the discussion, you will be able to safely share your experience, discuss challenges and learn strategies that others have found useful. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

Topics include:

  • Managing multiple health needs within the family
  • Higher levels of care that may be required for your child/children
  • Limits of community resources available
  • Managing communication about cancer
  • Taking care of you and your family’s mental health

We also welcome you to talk about any other topics you’d like to discuss.

This group is for you if:

  • You are a parent/guardian/carer of a child aged 0-18 who has a cancer diagnosis
  • You have a child who is neurodiverse or has a disability (and also has cancer or has a sibling with cancer)
  • You want to meet and talk with other parents/guardians/carers who also care for a child who is neurodiverse or has a disability
