Parent Support Group Series
We offer weekly parent support groups. Our groups are facilitated by licensed Mental Health professionals. By hosting these weekly support groups, we:
- provide a place for parents to feel part of a community
- discuss issues and concerns that can arise with raising a child with special needs
- gain feedback from other parents who have experienced similar situations.
Parent workshops are provided to educate parents on important and relevant topics such as Medicaid Waiver Services, Special Needs Financial Planning, and preparing for life after school.
We also offer sibling groups for brothers and sisters of Rebecca School students. These groups serve as a space for siblings to talk, have fun, meet other children with similar situations, and gain support from a special community of their own. Groups are facilitated by licensed Mental Health professionals.
Parent Education and Training in DIR®/Floortime™
Lastly, we offer a 4-week intensive training in DIR®/Floortime™ for parents and caregivers of Rebecca School students. Parents and caregivers come to learn how to provide DIR®/Floortime™ in their homes. These trainings are scheduled many times throughout the school year.
