Our Support Groups
The Autism Project currently offers support groups for parents and caregivers of children with ASD in both Johnston and Narragansett and for grandparents.
Families who receive a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for their child are faced with a confusing and sometimes frightening future that feels isolating and overwhelming. Their need for support and training is essential during the very early stages of receiving this diagnosis to help them better understand and respond to the complex nature of ASD. This project has been developed to help families:
- have on-going guidance from a knowledgeable mentor
- develop a network of supportive individuals who have similar experiences
- be connected to appropriate resources
- receive training in using best practices in their home and communities.
Through this initiative, The Autism Project will address the support and training that families need and desire.
