What we're about

If you are a parent who has a young child under age 5 who is at risk, has special needs, or is behind in their development, and you are worried they might not catch up, will be bullied in school, or might not make friends then this group is perfect for you!

Attend this FREE Parent Education & Support Group to:

· Help your child make progress and catch up
· Connect with other proactive parents and respected professionals
· Get out of fear and uncertainty about your future.

I’m a Developmental Specialist with about 30 years of experience working with children with special needs and I'm motivated to give back to my community. I’m certain you want to stop feeling worried, anxious, frustrated and overwhelmed and I can teach you how. If you want answers to help your child make progress, so they can grow up and live a happy, independent life - then this group can help you!

Many parents find it difficult to talk about their child’s issues with family and friends. You're not alone! Connecting with other proactive, dedicated parents who are walking a similar path can build your resilience and a strong sense of community. Having a network of support is crucial in fighting feelings of isolation, grief, stress and overwhelm.

This group is open to the public and 100% free of charge - you are welcome to make a donation if moved to do so.

Nursing babies welcome – no childcare available at this time – but stay tuned! 😊

If you have any questions before attending, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 650-218-1884. Our goal is to make you feel welcomed!

(A Note to Service Providers & Professionals: This Meetup is intended to be a support and educational group for PARENTS and FAMILY MEMBERS only. As such I ask that you please respect our members and refrain from attending these meetings unless you are asked to participate as a guest speaker with an approved, desired topic.

We can’t wait to welcome you in person at your 1st Parent Group with us! Join the group now, then RSVP today! 😊

HUGE hugs,

Denise
