Neuroimmune Parents Support Group
From Previous Participants
"Thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in this support group. I think it’s really important to have a resource like this for parents of kids with this isolating devastating illness."
"This has changed my life and my family’s life so much!"
"Early on in our experience, we of course knew no one going through this same crazy experience. It was immensely isolating and desolate. Having this group gave us a sense of community that we desperately needed and just the assurance that we were not alone."
Neuroimmune Parents' Support Group
Many parents who are caring for children with neuroimmune disorders experience a profound sense of isolation in their parenting experience, feeling as though no one really “gets it” when they try to convey what's involved in parenting a child with the unique challenges this diagnosis brings. Social media groups can be helpful, but many parents long to meet other parents who are on a similar parenting path, with the same struggles, same experiences, but who also appreciate the significance of the smallest accomplishments or victories. These parents describe yearning for an intentional space where they can actually have conversations and process what’s happening for them and their child with those who are like them.
Starting Monday, September 2nd, a new cohort of parents will come together for the next virtual parenting support group for parents of children with neuroimmune disorders. The group is intentionally small in numbers to create a sense of community where each parent has the opportunity to share about their experience in a safe, judgement free environment. The purpose of the group is three-fold: connect with other parents who have the same unique lived experience as you to learn with them and alongside them, learn about the neurobehavioral model of parenting and how this model, over time, can reduce frustration and increase understanding related to our child’s challenging behaviors, and how to implement intentional and thoughtful self-care practices that set the foundation of building the resilience required for this parenting journey.
To participate in this virtual support group,
Have a child with a neuroimmune disorder who is 11 years old or younger.
