    As the parent or caregiver of a child with a moderate-to-severe disability or a child who is medically fragile, we know that these are challenging times for you. Caring for your child 24/7 while still keeping up with at-home therapies, schoolwork, job responsibilities and household duties may have you feeling stressed and anxious. If so, we have created this Virtual Zoom Coffee and Chat just for you!

    Cate Brandon, PsyD from Kenneth A. De Luca, PhD. & Associates, Inc. will facilitate this private session along with Connecting for Kids staff members. Connect with us and other families who can understand and relate to how you are feeling.

    We know that it is most likely difficult for you to commit to spending an hour with us amid all of your other obligations, so please know that you can join us at any time during the hour and leave whenever you need to attend to your child or another matter. That is OK. We just want the opportunity to check in with you and let you know that we are here to give you support.
