Bracing for the comments?  School nights?  Doctors appointments?  Colleague questions?  Neighbor curiosities?  Dating???  SIGH.  We all know too well what it's like to be that person - who's pitied, wondered about, and often avoided due to our.... circumstance.  In this workshop we'll discuss how we get one foot in front of the other to face the "outside world" - We'll craft one liners for casual interactions and introductions with teachers, family, and the person on the other side of the post office window who doesn't know how hard it was for you to get there.  We will also cover conversation with kids and how we can best support them when faced with similar obstacles.  Bring your notebooks, questions, fears and hurdles and we'll tackle these challenges with warmth and yes, humor.
