Family Group Nights

*****IF the schools in the county you are planning to attend close due to weather conditions the meeting will be cancelled. 

Family Group Nights are for the families of children with special needs. These groups support not only parents and caregivers but the children in the family as well! Bring the whole family out enjoy dinner with other families who are raising a child with special needs. Then after dinner, we will divided into the following groups:

  • parents and caregivers
  • children with special needs, age 6-11
  • youth with special needs, age 12-21
  • siblings of children with special needs, age 6-21
  • child care, for all children age 5 or younger

For each meeting, there will be a topic that will be covered within the groups, both for the adults and children. Children's activities will be fun but will offer opportunities for growth and exploration of topics such as building self esteem and recognizing strengths.
