Peer support group for parents with children of Autism

A new peer support group for Parents with Children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in English. This is a place to share, learn, connect with other parents, celebrate successes, experience understanding without judging, learn that you are not alone.

The group is free of charge and intended for non-Finnish speaking parents in the metropolitan area. However everyone interested is welcome to join. Please note that we speak only English in the group.
