Support groups for parents of children with disabilities
You may find it useful to talk to other parents who have children with disabilities. There are organisations and charities with local support groups which parents can go to. You can ask your health or social worker about support groups in your area.
Some charities and organisations offer support for people with specific impairments or needs. They may be able to advise you about any support groups that exist near you.
