Family Connections Meetings

For the parents that need a friendly voice, someone to listen or just another person who understands their unique journey, we have a phone network of parents to provide emotional support.

We hold monthly Family Connections meetings designed to give families the opportunity to meet each other, discuss issues surrounding Autism, and share experiences and information. Please check the calendar for the next meeting date.
