Help is Here for Parents of Special Needs Children

Are you raising a special needs child and feeling isolated and alone?  The Occupational Therapy Assistant Program (OTA) at Middle Georgia State University would like to help.  The students and staff are sponsoring a support group for parents of children with special needs.  The first meeting will be Monday, September 25 from 5:30 to 6:30 on the Cochran Campus at the Roberts Memorial Library room 108.

Raising children is not a task for the faint of heart.  Parenting is a 24/7 job that most parents take on in addition to a career.  It requires a never-ending well of patience, love, and understanding, and even in the best of circumstances that emotional well can run dry at times.  When parents are caring for children with special needs that well can run dry even more quickly, especially when you are feeling isolated and alone. The OTA students and faculty at MGA want to help you connect with other parents who are experiencing the same emotional and physical stresses.

You can’t help your child. if you don’t stay strong emotionally and physically, so don’t miss this opportunity to fill your emotional well.  Come out Monday September 25 from 5:30 to 6:30 at Roberts Memorial Library and meet other parents who are raising special needs children.  A burden shared is a lighter burden.
