The monthly meetings provide a tremendous opportunity to connect with families going through exactly what you are. There will be experienced SASS members who will be more than happy to share their valuable experience and insight with you. They will also provide words of comfort and optimism about the next chapter of your journey.
You can also reach out to SASS directly for individual mentoring. We are fortunate enough to have a few members who have specifically volunteered to assist with mentoring. Simply provide us with a brief overview of your situation, including:
Age of child affected by ASD
When you received your diagnosis
Anything else you'd like to share
