Autism Spectrum parent support group meets again on March 26

Published 10:14 am Monday, March 11, 2013

The Polk County/Foothills Parent and Family Support Group “reboots” with its first meeting of 2013 on Tuesday, March 26 at 6 p.m. at the Polk County Public Library.

The support group acts as clearinghouse for relevant information on local workshops, resources, conferences and discussion groups. In addition, co-coordinators Belynda Veser and Tracey Daniels often meet with families to point individuals in the right direction and also maintain a current list of service providers, professional parent advocates and book recommendations.

The group is an official Chapter Support Group of the Autism Society of America and assists residents from Polk, Rutherfordton, Hendersonville and Upstate (SC). Educators and supportive friends are always welcome. The co-coordinators want to continue to support our community and are actively looking for volunteers for babysitting, organizing and planning, and help arranging speakers, etc.
