You will learn how to avoid common mistakes parents often make that can be detrimental to their child’s future.

What happens at the support group meetings?

Meetings are an opportunity for parents to meet informally and to share ideas, experiences and information. New families and caregivers are always welcome. Those who wish to share or simply listen are invited to attend.  PHP provides a forum for parents and professionals to get information.  Sorry, there is no childcare available.  Please sign in between 6:15-6:45pm.

Who facilitates the meetings?

Kat is the autism support group facilitator, she started her journey with autism 10 years ago when she and her husband received their son’s diagnosis.  She didn’t know anyone with a child that had autism and PHP’s Autism Support Group was a lifeline for her.  At her blog ( she shares her experience with other moms that have kids with autism.  

While you’re there...

There is a collection of excellent materials available on Autism Spectrum Disorder available for check-out at the PHP Resource Library for both parents and professionals.
