Sometimes it can feel like you are all alone on this autism journey, and there is no substitute for face-to-face connection when you need a friend.
Join us at one of our ASCV support groups for a time to share triumphs, frustrations and to be around others who get the highs and lows of raising a child/supporting an adult on the autism spectrum.
We offer a group of supporters who understand what you are going through so that you have an outlet to interact, share your experiences and learn from others. Come and meet other people who are walking the same path.
Currently we are offering the following facilitated support groups:
Parents of Spectrum Adults Once your child is out of high school there is a whole new set of challenges that you face as a parent. Find the support you need with other parents/guardians of adults on the spectrum. This group meets from 7pm-8:30pm on the last Monday night of each month at the River Road United Methodist Church location. No registration is necessary.
NEW IN 2018 – Parents of Children ages 0-8 with ASD Join other parents/guardians of young children with ASD for this monthly support group time. This group meets from 12:30pm-1:30pm on the second Saturday of each month at the Manchester YMCA in Chesterfield. Free onsite childcare is provided for this group on a first come – first serve basis for up to 12 children. Childcare participants MUST register in advance. Registration is also requested for support group participants for planning purposes.
