When you're the parent or carer of a child with additional support needs, various aspects of the caregiving role get magnified. Playdates can become complex projects requiring diplomacy, support, and vast quantities of time and patience. Trips to the doctor are more frequent, time-consuming, and fraught with worry. Shopping excursions can result in sensory and emotional overloads for both you and the child. Socializing with family and friends who don’t understand can result in judgemental stares and comments, making you feel like a bad parent.

With so much more to think about, worry about, plan for, and manage, it is paramount that you're taking good care of yourself and get support from others who understand.  This support group provides space, connection and advice so you feel heard, validated and supported.
