Each 1-hour session will include an interactive topic followed by a facilitated group discussion. Families can sign up for any group; however topics of the groups are based on age of child in order to help connect families with resources and support that most similarly reflects their current needs. Groups are geared toward parents/caregivers of children and young adults with autism or who display characteristics of autism.
Benefits of participating include the following:
Topics facilitated by a licensed clinical social worker/behavior analyst
Practical resources and handouts
Emotional support and input from other parents/caregivers
Connection with families with children of similar ages
Light refreshments for those who attend in person.
