This is a support group for caregivers of children ages 10 and over, who identify as neurodiverse or experience social-emotional, cognitive, or behavioral challenges. Facilitated by Jess Levine LCSW, we will create a space for caregivers to talk about the unique challenges and joys in raising differently wired kids. Resources and outside referrals can be provided as part of the support group. This group will meet 12 times in 2023. Due to limited capacity and in order to create a meaningful experience for all participants, we ask that you commit to the year. We know things come up but please do your best to attend the majority of sessions.
