Groups for Parents and Professionals
At Synergy Autism Center, we specialize in guiding parents and professionals surrounding individuals with autism. Sometimes, people like to meet in groups to get to know each other while also learning some new information.
There are three groups meeting this year:
- Parents of Teens with Autism Ages 15-18 years old
- Parents of Adult Children with Autism Living at Home
- The Portland Autism Group for Professionals working in the field of Autism
