Parents of Autistic Adults Support Group (Free)

Please register here to indicate you are interested in hearing about the next session which will likely happen in early January. This free four-week program over Zoom is designed to support parents of adults on the spectrum and other neurodiversities. In addition to connecting with other parents, we will discuss how autism impacts each adult child and how to support and coach them toward creating connected, meaningful lives in which they can thrive.

After only two sessions of this group, I can say this has completely transformed my entire household. My daughter can tell my husband and I are getting coaching because we are interacting completely differently with her.
