Parenting can be quite challenging at times. Parenting a child with a developmental delay, physical or intellectual disability, or emotional condition such as anxiety can be quite daunting. We are all worried about the same things. We all want the most for our children. We ultimately want them to be happy, healthy, active and as independent as possible. The question is, how do we get them there? We all have similar concerns and want the same basic information: how are our children doing in school and in the community, what can we do to help them, how can we make IEP meetings more productive, what can we do about certain behaviors, and what community resources are available? Every family has challenges and wonder how other families overcame theirs. Who better to support us than other parents who are facing similar challenges?
The Support group will meet the third Thursday of the month at Hunting Cree Annex. Please join us as we delight in our children’s victories, support each other through the difficult times, share tips and ideas we have learned in our own journey and laugh together as we discuss life with our amazing children.
Please call or email Sue Rafalowski if you are coming. It helps in preparation for the meeting. Phone: 410-535-7387 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
