POCA Group (Parents of Children with Autism) (currently offered online)

 

POCA (Parents of Children with Autism) is a support group that is designed to serve as a safe place in which caregivers who have children on the autism spectrum can support one another through sharing experiences, processing feelings, learning about resources, practicing self-care, and finding a sense of community with fellow parents.

 

This is not a class; it is a group where we encourage participation and create a safe space for every parent to share their stories and experiences, ask questions, and connect on common topics. Each group is individualized to the members within it to optimize benefits for each caregiver.
