Next Meetup

Let's See if We Can Get Together Before the Year's Over!
I couldn't decide on a public venue, so I'm going to open my home for our first meet-up. (Bonus: if you want to feel better about your housekeeping skills, my home is the place to be!) I hope some of you will be able to make it, and we can discuss locations for future meet-ups as well as what you'd like to get out of this group. I really want to make this a safe, comfortable, fun event for everyone. If you plan on attending, it would be helpful if you could share some general info about your kids, such as ages (actual and/or developmentally); activities they enjoy; and any special considerations (e.g., sensory seeking and/or avoidant, easily overwhelmed, etc.). Not required, but anything you're comfortable sharing will help me plan an afternoon that's fun for everybody. FOOD: This is scheduled for between lunch and dinner, but I will have snacks, drinks, etc. Please let me know if you/your kids have any dietary restrictions, food allergies, sensory-related food aversions, or just general pickiness. I'll do my best to accommodate everyone! If you have any restrictions that I likely can't accommodate (e. g., strict kosher, severe allergy and worried about cross-contamination) or simply would prefer, feel free to bring your own food, whether just for you or to share. CATS: I have two of them. While the actual cats will be shut in a bedroom for the event, their dander is another story. GUESTS: Neurotypical siblings are welcome, along with any other family members. Please ask any questions you have or make any suggestions you'd like!

    What we're about

    This group is meant to serve as both a support group for parents and a playgroup/socialization opportunity for the kids.

    It’s meant to be inclusive; your child does not need to have any particular diagnosis to “qualify” you for membership. If there’s interest, I am hoping we can maybe have meet-ups both with and without the kids.

    My child has ADHD and anxiety; your journey may be different than ours, but maybe we can relate and offer support. I have trouble making parent friends because I spend so much of the time focused on my own child’s behavior; I have always shied away from joining playgroups because I worry about being judged. My child has limited social skills and does not make friends easily.

    If you can relate to any of that, perhaps we can build a group together.
