Building Family Resilience professionals, Claudia and Sarah explained mutually beneficial relationships, making choices that align with your preferences but are connected with viable opportunities, and combating trauma.

At the core of resilience are the questions: Who am I? How am I? How do I know? Being able to answer these three questions builds resilience. Stressors can cause road blocks in our lives and with the current state of the world, these tools from the Growing Family Resilience Series were so helpful to our families! 

Thank you Claudia and Sarah for helping us grow to be stronger, more mindful individuals!

Peer-to-Peer Support Groups                 COFFEE, TEA & AUTISM 

Are you interested in meeting people who have also been impacted by autism? Join our online Facebook group or come to one of the Coffee, Tea & Autism meetings in your county!

 What parents are saying:

“I came to my first meeting looking for ways to be a better parent to my son with autism. And while I got that, this group became more than a class or just information. The group has helped me become a more confident mother. It is a safe place to share stories that other friends would not understand. We share both the joy of the advances and disappointment and fear of setbacks.  While everyone's experience is different, so much power comes from realizing you are not alone".
