    Parent Education and Support Group



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. Moms of Kids with Autism (M.O.K.A.) meets once a month year round. For more information on dates and location, please contact Ashley Bennett at 832-660-5931 or mokasugarland@gmail.com or join the Facebook group: “MOKA sugar land”
