Neurodiverse means more than autism these days; it also includes ADHD, learning differences, gifted, anxiety and mood disorders, etc.

This special interest and support group is for parents of neurodiverse young adults who are collegebound, in college or graduated, and building professional careers. That can also include neurodiverse young adults who are taking a break from college, living at home, transferring colleges, overwhelmed by life today, underemployed or unemployed, and looking for a job. We get it!

It’s like a book group but better! Parents attend parent education webinars and workshops throughout the month, then we get together on the PHP Zoom to discuss the topics of the webinars and how they work for us and our families. The goal is to support each other to successfully weather the ebb and flow of wins, setbacks, and societal/economic changes related to relationships with our neurodiverse young adults. 

Webinar and workshop providers:

  • Parents Helping Parents 
  • Stanford Neurodiversity Project Special Interest Group and Network for K-12 Neurodiversity Education and Advocacy (NNEA) 
  • Join PNCC and we’ll let you know about other upcoming neurodiversity related webinars and workshops.
  • And more!
How does this support group work?

  • Discuss and share! 4th Monday of the month: Attend the PNCC support group meeting via Zoom to exchange and support each other. Registration is required for each meeting, see the Group Meeting Calendar link in “Helpful Info”.

  • Give back! Join the PHP Parents of Neurodiverse volunteer team – PNTeam – to help support PHP in providing support group services to families of neurodiverse kids, teens, and adults.
