Walking the narrow line between wanting to share in treatment and parenting decisions for your grandchild with a disability and trusting your adult children to know what is best can feel like a harrowing, tight-rope act.  How much involvement is appropriate? How can grandparents be a valuable resource to their grandchild with a disability while supporting their adult children in their parenting decisions?

The Grandparent Support Group:

  • Connects people with similar experiences.
  • Provides new resources, ideas and suggestions for interacting with your grandchild.
  • Encourages you throughout your family’s journey with Autism.
  • Celebrates grandchild/grandparent successes no matter how small.
  • Lets you know you are not alone.
  • Allows understanding without judgment.

The Grandparent Support Group will meet virtually via Zoom.  An electronic device equipped with a microphone and camera are required to participate using the Zoom platform.
