Parents Support Group
Supporting each other; supporting our children.
Parent Support Group
Our parent support group started in May 2016 at a public forum meeting. Parents at that meeting felt that they could be of help to each other and work together to provide support for their children.
The group decided to meet the first Tuesday of every month at the COG building in State College. Starting in March, meeting will take place at the ACRES house on Bernel Road. Darlene Maple, one of our parents, will take over the group. The agenda for each meeting is set by parents to provide the information that they feel is necessary.
Information about parent support group meetings will be posted on this website, as well as resources for waiver programs, funding, and upcoming programs and events. Starting in March, a mentor program will be designed for parents of adults with autism to mentor parents of newly diagnosed children.
