Where can I get support from other parents of kids with disabilities?

Where can I get support from other parents of kids with disabilities?

Published: Aug. 2, 2023Updated: Aug. 2, 2023

Many of us on the Undivided team have been where you are now: trying to understand the medical terms that are supposed to describe our child, trying to figure out what to do next, trying not to fall apart under the weight of all of it. We want you to know that it is normal and appropriate to feel scared, sad, or overwhelmed. As parents who are now a few years further along in this journey, we would like to share a few pieces of advice that we hope will help you move forward.

We would also like to encourage you to lean on your support groups — your family, friends, and more — when you can, and to find other parents raising kids with disabilities. We can learn so much from each other! We hope that the Undivided community can become a source of support for you. Check out our private Facebook group just for parents, where you can ask questions and find support on this journey from other parents raising kids of all ages and with all kinds of diagnoses.
