The Autism Support Group for Parents meets monthly to discuss autism-related issues relevant to school-aged youth.
Who should attend?
This autism support group is ideal for parents, professionals, and caregivers of school-aged children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). We also encourage attendance from those working with children with developmental delays in communication, behavior, and social skills.
This is a wonderful chance to connect with parents and families with experiences similar to yours. You can share your personal story, or simply listen and learn from other parents. Some meetings will include a local professional to present on special needs topics.
Meetings are hybrid in-person/remote and facilitated by two compassionate volunteers: Adi and Shyla.
When are meetings held?
Meetings are on the 1st Tuesday from 10:30-12:00 PM. Note that all meeting times are for the Pacific Time Zone.
Please plan to have your camera on during our meetings to build trust and collaboration. Families share sensitive information during our groups and it’s more supportive to be able to see each other. All PHP support groups are confidential.
