Empower Autism

Parent Support Groups

Our Parents Groups are run simultaneously with Youth Groups. Parent Groups offer an opportunity to connect with other parents and carers in your area and share experiences, strategies and challenges.  While being on the same site, each group has separate rooms. This allows parents to remain responsible for their children whilst providing a more private forum to meet, share their experiences and build a support network.

We periodically invite specialist speakers to present information about services and supports relevant to the group. Parents who do not have a child attending our Youth Group are welcome to attend with a small cost of $10 per session to assist with expenses. 

Our parent group at Mt Gravatt is a self-help discussion group which meets monthly for coffee.
