Parenting can be joyful, stressful, uplifting and frustrating – all in one day (hour?!).
The journey to, through, and beyond a special needs diagnosis can make the parenting experience all the more intense. Join an intimate circle of fellow travelers on the first Monday evening of the month for sharing, listening, and supporting each other with practical advice. Jewish wisdom will be used as a framework for discussion prompts; however, no Jewish background or affiliation is necessary and no proselytization will occur. For parents of babies, preschool or early-elementary aged children with any diagnosis. Due to sensitive sharing between the participants, this group is not appropriate for observers.
