I started a Facebook group called Reality Autism about a year ago. This group has about 50 active members and we are all special needs parents or friends or family of a special needs child. This group is closed to the public view in order to ensure it’s a safe place to speak your mind. Many people come here to vent to people who never cast judgement because we have all been there.
I’m always amazed at how open and honest our members are with each other. We discuss all kinds of things related to special needs parenting from behavioral issues to unsupportive family. We also share the amazing experiences associated with being a special needs parent. One of the coolest things about this group is that some people come by to learn how to better support a friend or family member that is a special needs parent. We all have questions and we all learn from each other.
While the group is closed, anyone can join. We all treat each other with respect and dignity. Please join us and maybe we can learn something from you or the other way around 🙂
