    The isolation of raising a child with special needs is real. People we once counted as friends disappear or invitations stop coming. Meet other families and receive encouragement as we discuss the article, “13 Things Hard for Me to Admit as a Special Needs Parent.” Lisa Ruman, LISW, CHt, of The Child & Family Counseling Center of Westlake, will facilitate a discussion about ways to find support for the journey.

    Need child care? Click here to register.

    Please join us for a bit more discussion and connection immediately after. All participants are welcome to meet at Hail Mary's Food and Drink, 27828 Center Ridge Rd, from 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm to come together with other participants and chat with our Family Resource Specialists.
