Support Groups

Our support groups provide space for participants to seek peer-to-peer support from one another as well as practical information and education.

Family Support Groups

Our Family Support Groups focus on the experience of caregivers of children with disabilities. Each group is facilitated by a parent of a child with a disability and encourage peer to peer connections and support along with guest speakers or special topics when appropriate
