Easterseals offers a Parent Support Group hosted on a monthly basis. Topics include guardianship, respite care, sexuality/disability training, make-and-take sessions targeting materials used for communication and/or structure in the home and other topics deemed necessary by parents. At the beginning of each school year, parents are surveyed to determine topics of interest and presenters are scheduled accordingly.
The Parent Support Group facilitates parent-to-parent connections for families new to Easterseals Academy. Additionally, we provide support for community members who have a new diagnosis in their family.
