    Parent Education and Support Groups



The Arc of Fort Bend County hosts a virtual parent education and support group meeting on the second Thursday of the month between Sept. – Dec., and Feb. – May at 11 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 (IDD). The presentation is also recorded and posted on The Arc of Fort Bend County Facebook page and on the website for later viewing.


M.O.K.A. (Moms of Kids with Autism and other IDD’s ):

M.O.K.A. is a support group in Sugar Land that was created with one goal in mind: to provide a safe, judgement-free space where parents of kids with Autism and other IDD’s can connect and let it all out!  Join fellow parents each month as we support each other on our parenting journey.  We hope to see you there!

M.O.K.A. meets on the second Monday of the month throughout the school year @ 7 pm at floating locations in Sugar Land.

Updates and locations are announced through the Facebook page: MOKA Sugar Land.

Ask to join the private Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1012957139103645

The Arc also encourages new and existing peer-to-peer support groups to engage in the “grassroots” awareness and
advocacy of people with IDD.
