DSRC-Weekly Mother's Support Group

The Mothers’ Support Group at DSRC is an 8-week group, providing the opportunity for Mothers to discuss a range of topics related to parenting a child with an intellectual disability and / or autism.  

Topics include understanding and sharing the diagnosis, grief and resilience, interacting with schools, behavioural challenges and self-care.  Guest speakers from the community and DSRC also contribute their expertise.  The group is a great way to connect with other Mothers who understand your daily experience.  

The Mothers’ Support Group is a small group, for 6 – 8 members, and runs for 8 consecutive weeks.   Day and evening times are offered.  

Groups are offered 2 – 3 times per year.    

Please call 519-741-1121 for more information about how to join.
