Our Parent Connections support group and parenting education program is designed for mothers and fathers who experience a cognitive impairment or other developmental disability. It follows the supported parenting model which involves working long term to build on families’ strengths in order to promote competence and sustain independence. The program assists moms and dads to successfully parent their children and prevent child abuse and neglect.
The support group meets twice a month. A social worker facilities the group discussion. A meal is provided along with child care. Assistance with transportation is available.
