Are you only a group for children with special needs?
When my son was first starting therapy, I was overwhelmed with doctors,
therapists and conflicting advice. I attended a support group for
children with special needs, but felt as though my child's issues were
minor compared to the challenges the women in the group were facing. I
told my friends that my sons needs weren't severe enough to justify
attending the group's functions.
In short, we all want a place to find support, resources and information AND find another family whose child has similar issues. So our group is taking the philosophy that every child has special and unique needs, whether they have a formal diagnosis or are considered "typically developing."
At some of our programs, we will give you an opportunity to split into groups based on the type of issue your child is facing. At other events, we will discuss issues that are relevant to every family, regardless of what your child is facing.
Everyone is welcome. Every child's needs are special. We are open to all.
