Finding Resources and Emotional Support
Parents tell us...
"I love my support group. It keeps me going. The kids are happy to see each other too." "Whenever I have a problem, I ask my support group. Someone always has an idea worth trying." "We do fun things together. I can relax and know they will understand. We might need to leave early due to a melt-down or eat something special and it is okay." "I feel closer to some of my group friends than I do to my own family."
