Support & Education Groups

The Arc’s networking groups offer information, resources and emotional support. Most groups are led by parents of children with disabilities who have first-hand knowledge and experience with the issues parents face.  Some are informal; others have specific educational topics and speakers each month. See events calendar for dates.
