“I am so grateful for the monthly Autism Support meetings. The parents that I have met through this group, and the information that has been shared, have helped my son and our family immensely. The parents in the group, just ‘get it.’ I felt so alone when we first received Charles’ ASD diagnosis. All of our immediate friends have neuro-typical children and none of them could understand what we were going through. Not only have I met wonderful people, who I now consider friends, but we were able to get Charles set up into an After 3 program that he loves. And I would have never known about this program had it not been for this support group. I look forward to continued meetings and workshops as both have been extremely informative.”
Our support groups give parents, grandparents, and brothers and sisters an opportunity to find others who understand their concerns, and gain strategies for home, school, and community integration.
