The Autism Society of Greater Akron is excited to provide a time for grandparents to network and talk about their children and grandchildren who are living with a disability.  Grandparents play an important role in the family unit and may include:

• Supporting the parents (your children)
• Providing child care/babysitting
• Teaching
• Researching information
• Historian (recalling family stories)
• Some grandparents also fill the role of a parent for their grandchildren

Every family has its own dynamics. Regardless of your situation there are a number of things you can do to help both your child and your grandchild.

ATTEND THIS CHAT TO DISCUSS:

  • Why do they do the things they do
  • Tips on how to interact with a child with autism
  • Ways you can help the child with autism deal with the challenges he or she faces daily
  • Your fears and anxieties and celebrating successes especially during the times of COVID
  • Suggestions on how to discuss autism with other family members
  • Networking with other grandparents

NOTE:  While there is a focus on autism, grandparents of grandchildren of all abilities are welcome!
