Online Support Group Image


If you are a parent of a child from birth through age 26 who has special needs, Matrix sponsors online support groups for parent-to-parent support and information sharing. These online groups are for parents only, to provide a safe space to support and encourage each other. Appropriate topics for this discussion list include issues related to disabilities in children from birth to 26 years of age. Families are welcome to recommend or comment on service providers and their services that they have personal experience with. The groups are moderated by a Matrix Parent Advisor.
