Elmira City School District

Autism Support Group

 

2017-18 Parent Support Group Meetings

Booth Education Center, 414 Davis Street, Elmira

Autism Parent Support Group logo

Purpose: The purpose of ECSD’s Support Group Meetings is to provide parents an opportunity to talk about the challenges that they face daily and network with others who may have faced the same challenge and had success. An important function of our meetings will be to introduce families to others like themselves, who can provide much needed information and emotional support. Our meetings will offer a place for parents to share experiences, get information and advice and make long-lasting friendships.
