Parent Support Group
All parents want to do the best for their children and at some point in every parent’s life there may be a time when advice, information and support may be welcomed. The opportunity to meet and talk with other parents in a group situation can help to make the job of being a parent easier.
When a parent has a child with an additional need, their world can be filled with many unanswered questions and sometimes it can feel like a very lonely struggle. But they are not alone. The best way to find answers and a source of reassurance and understanding is to get together with other families who are going through the same thing, or have been through it and are willing to lend their support to others.
One great way to connect with these families is to provide a parent support group within Oakfield School. Parent groups can share information about the needs of their children, school services, local policies, funding sources and emotional support and much more. Our next meeting will be held when COVID-19 restrictions are removed.
