Meet together: Meet other carers of children with disabilities
Share together: Share ideas, questions, concerns and experiences of caring for your child, and yourself
Learn together: Learn about wellness, child development, health, education and your rights
Talk together: Talk about your experiences and how you are feeling
Practice together: Practice with the help of trained facilitators
Discover together: Discover how to create an effective support community
