Parenting can be joyful, stressful, uplifting, and frustrating – all in one day (hour?!).

The journey to, through, and beyond a disability diagnosis in the early years of your child’s life can make the parenting experience all the more intense. Join an intimate circle of fellow travelers for sharing, listening, and supporting each other with practical advice. The Early Years Support Group is for parents who have children between the ages of 2-8 with any disability.

Facilitated by Maria, an elementary school teacher and mom. The group is compassion-based and for anyone interested in meeting others sharing the journey of parenting a child with a disability. Join us!
