Yay!!  I finally did it!  I have been repeatedly asked to start and run another Parent Education & Support Group on the Bay Area Peninsula for a long, long time….  well, I launched it on my Birthday last month!

 

It makes my heart sing when I see amazing, dedicated parents coming together to connect and support each other while helping their kiddos who have developmental delays and/or special needs!

If you are a parent who has a young child under the age of 5 who has special needs or is behind in their development, and you are worried they might not catch up, will be bullied in school, or might not make friends then this group is perfect for you!

Attend this COMPLIMENTARY Parent Education & Support Group to:

· Help your child make progress and catch up
· Connect with other proactive parents and respected professionals
· Regain hope, feel empowered, and encouraged about your child’s future

I’m motivated to host this group based on what YOU want and need.  I’m certain you just want to stop feeling worried, anxious, frustrated and overwhelmed.  You want answers to help your child make progress, so they can grow up and live a happy, independent life – this group can help!

Many parents find it difficult to talk about their child’s issues with family and friends.  You are not alone!  Connecting with other proactive, dedicated parents who are walking a similar path can build your resilience and a strong sense of community.  Having a network of support is crucial in fighting feelings of isolation, grief and overwhelm.

It is also important to know your rights and to connect with high quality, respected professionals who are dedicated to helping young children with special needs and delays make progress and succeed.  After all, it’s all about the kids!

Please come and discover the magic of community – of connecting with other devoted parents and professionals who “get it.”  This group is designed to foster connection and help bring people together.  My goal is to bring in guest speakers and provide parents with resources and information that they want, as well as provide hope, laughter, and a sense of belonging.  The quickest way to gain the support you crave and the information you need is to join this amazing community!  It’s your one-stop shop for guidance, answers and support – and the opportunity to develop true friendships (for you and your child) if you choose to do so.

This group is open to the public and 100% free of charge.

I’m shaping this group for YOU!  Your input is highly desired and I want to provide what you need in terms of information and support.  Ideally, topics will come organically from members in the group, other proactive parents, like yourself, who just want their child to meet their developmental milestones, catch up, and succeed.

A Note to Service Providers & Professionals: This Meetup is intended to be a support and educational group for PARENTS and FAMILY MEMBERS only.  As such I ask that you please respect our members and refrain from attending these meetings unless you are asked to participate as a guest speaker with an approved, desired topic.  Please contact me if you wish to discuss the possibility of being a speaker or sponsor.

Parents and family members, please come join our community and be part of something special and unique.  It takes a village – are you ready to find ‘Your Tribe’ and let your voice be heard?  Together, we can help your child make progress.

Nursing babies welcome – no childcare available at this time – but stay tuned! ?
