As parents, we are constantly juggling multiple roles, multitasking and shifting gears. If you’re a parent of an autistic or ADHD child, you don’t have to navigate this journey alone. In this group, we provide a sense of community and understanding that can be difficult to find elsewhere.

Come together with others in similar situations to find support, share your experiences, and learn new tools and strategies to help you better support your child and yourself.
