Parents have the most lasting impact on their children as they are their learning models. But as parents, they also need a sense of reassurance and faith in their own and their child’s abilities. Asha Hai, an autism school in south Delhi, brings a parent to parent program called ASPIRE wherein we provide a platform for our parents to seek and provide emotional and social support.
“ASPIRE- Asha Hai Supportive Parents Initiative to Reach Equity"
ASPIRE is an special initiative by Asha Hai (Autism school in south Delhi), which aims to provide a safe, positive and fun environment for Parents to share their experiences, learn, and support each other through their own journeys.
I know that parenting is not an easy task and as a parent I needed a place, a friend to vent out my feelings and someone who could appreciate my efforts as a parent and tell me that whatever measures I was taking for my child were either right or wrong. “ASPIRE” provided me this support, at first I didn’t know anyone which made me a little nervous but at the end of the meeting, which was organized in the autism school in south Delhi, I realised that I am not alone in my struggle and that there were other parents who were going through the same emotional rollercoaster. I recommend all parents to be a part of such groups.
