Parent Support Networks

Designed for parents and families of children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, the ASD Parent Support Network provides a caring environment for parents to share experiences, network and learn coping and intervention strategies from other parents, as well as professionals. ASD support groups are open to parents, grandparents and caregivers. The group takes place at The Help Group’s Culver City Campus every first Tuesday of the month in English and every third Tuesday of the month in Spanish. The Sherman Oaks parent support network meets the first Wednesday of every month.
