PARENT CIRCLE/KID CIRCLE
For families and children with special needs...Your child’s education develops through a partnership between home, community, & school!
We offer both a parent support group and a social skills group to assist families with their child’s developmental & educational needs.
Parent Circle - a support and infomational
group for families of students with disabilities
(such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down
Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome, or Learning
Disabilities). These meetings provide assis-
tance with various challenges encountered,
as well as a forum to celebrate talents and
strengths. The Parent Circle is a supportive
and friendly place where parents or guardians
are welcome to share their experiences
and questions, or to just listen.
Kid Circle is a social skills group for students
(ages 7– 15) to develop appropriate social skills.
This program is offered at the same time
in the evening as the Parent Circle meeting in
order for your children to play and interact with
peers. Kid Circle is hosted by volunteer teachers,
related service providers, and counselors.
Meetings are held once monthly at the
Alternative Learning Center @ Maybrook 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
(located at 120 Broadway, Maybrook NY )
* Please call or email if your child is interested in our Kid Circle group
You are welcome to join at any time!
