Need To Find Other Parents Of SPD Teens

by Cristine
(Puyallup, WA)

There is so much out there now to cover when they are young, but nothing as they are finishing HS and entering College. Is it possible to connect somehow with other parents who are at, or moved into, that part of their children's lives? Thanks in advance.

Hi Cristine,

I know! That is indeed a problem, isn't it? We are working on this. For now? The best place I can recommend is our SPD Adult SHARE online support group. It would be a great place for you, as a parent, as well as for your daughter/son to talk to others her/his age. There are other adolescents and young adults in there, and the group has been growing quickly! Here's the link to join: SPD Adult SHARE. I do hope this helps.

I'm not sure where you live, but you can also check out our SPD Parent SHARE Host Directory and/or SPD Parent SHARE Local Support Groups to see if we have any resources in your area too.

I hope you find the connections you are looking for!

Take good care.
Michele Mitchell
