 Across The Spectrum: Parent Support Group
No parent should feel alone in their journey of raising a child with autism. It’s tough to care for them, teach them, advocate for them, fight for them, all while taking care of ourselves at the same time. Our kids don’t come with a special manual or born to parents who have a certain set of skills. We learn as we go. Sometimes we figure things out fairly quickly, and sometimes it takes years of hard work and perspiration. If we try to do it all alone, or feel that we’ve been abandoned by those we once counted on, life can easily begin to feel as though it’s impossible. Join our support group and chat with other parents who can offer advice or support and help others by sharing your own knowledge and experience. Every first Tuesday of the month.

 Military Parent Support Group
No parent should feel alone in their journey of raising a child with autism. It’s tough to care for them, teach them, advocate for them, fight for them, all while taking care of ourselves at the same time. Our kids don’t come with a special manual or born to parents who have a certain set of skills. We learn as we go. Sometimes we figure things out fairly quickly, and sometimes it takes years of hard work and perspiration. If we try to do it all alone, or feel that we’ve been abandoned by those we once counted on, life can easily begin to feel as though it’s impossible. Join our support group and chat with other parents who can offer advice or support and help others by sharing your own knowledge and experience. Meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month.

 Across The Spectrum: Parent Support Group
No parent should feel alone in their journey of raising a child with autism. It’s tough to care for them, teach them, advocate for them, fight for them, all while taking care of ourselves at the same time. Our kids don’t come with a special manual or born to parents who have a certain set of skills. We learn as we go. Sometimes we figure things out fairly quickly, and sometimes it takes years of hard work and perspiration. If we try to do it all alone, or feel that we’ve been abandoned by those we once counted on, life can easily begin to feel as though it’s impossible. Join our support group and chat with other parents who can offer advice or support and help others by sharing your own knowledge and experience. Every first Tuesday of the month.

 Across The Spectrum: Parent Support Group
No parent should feel alone in their journey of raising a child with autism. It’s tough to care for them, teach them, advocate for them, fight for them, all while taking care of ourselves at the same time. Our kids don’t come with a special manual or born to parents who have a certain set of skills. We learn as we go. Sometimes we figure things out fairly quickly, and sometimes it takes years of hard work and perspiration. If we try to do it all alone, or feel that we’ve been abandoned by those we once counted on, life can easily begin to feel as though it’s impossible. Join our support group and chat with other parents who can offer advice or support and help others by sharing your own knowledge and experience. Every first Tuesday of the month.
