The Arc of Fort Bend County hosts a parent education and support group on the second Thursday of the month between Sept. – Dec., and Feb. – May at 10:30 am. The group encourages parents to share their triumphs and challenges while also providing parents with information about available community resources. Each meeting also includes a presentation about a disability-related topic to improve the quality of life of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). For those who cannot make it to the meeting in-person, the presentation portion is also recorded on Facebook Live and posted for later viewing at their convenience.
We also encourage new and existing peer-to-peer support groups to engage in the “grass roots” awareness and advocacy of people with I/DD. The Moms of Kids with Autism (M.O.K.A.) meets at The Arc of Fort Bend County office on the second Tuesday of the month throughout the school year. For additional information about M.O.K.A., contact Ashley Bennett at 832-660-5931 or firstname.lastname@example.org
