Kids don’t come with instruction booklets. It’s not uncommon for parents to feel alone and at a loss as to what to do when children come into their lives, as well as when their kids reach new developmental stages. Although this is true for all parents, parents of children with special needs can feel even more isolated. But no one needs to go through the ups and downs, challenges and joys of parenting alone. There are parent support groups throughout the country that meet both in-person and online, where parents can share and offer support to each other.
