​The Power of Group Support
​"Parents of children who have invisible special needs often feel
​isolated, judged and frustrated
​they meet other parents sharing a similar journey".
Susan Zajicek, Parents Supporting Parents.

​You are never alone.  There are always people who are facing what you are facing.  You just don't know them...YET!



I am the mother of a 10 year-old son who has been diagnosed with ADHD and Asperger's.  I am also a Master's Level social worker who has worked with families and children for over 20 years.  As a couselor, I have facilitated many groups with many populations.  In my opinion, the group setting is one of the most powerful tools there is to lend support.   The concept of collective wisdom is that the group is more powerful than the individual.  More people=more experiences and perspectives from which to learn.  The other powerful role that a group dynamic plays is that it lets people know that they are not alone in their thoughts and feelings.  One of the best ways to heal is to have the knowledge that you have a support system.  Isolation can be a very dangerous and debilitating action for a person to take.  It is vitally important to get yourself out of your head and into a place where you can relate to and interact with others.
