ONLINE 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.

We offer groups for both parents and professionals.  If you are interested in one of our groups please let us know, we often schedule groups based on interest.


Parents of Adult Children Living at Home

This group meets once per month.  The fee to attend will be $90/parent which covers 3 sessions and is co-facilitated by Barbara Avila, M.S. and Peggy Piers, M.Ed

Contact us if you’re interested in joining or would like additional information.


Parents of Teens on Spectrum

In the past we have offered a group to support parents of teens.  The group is on hold for now, but we may offer it again in the future.  Contact us if you are interested and we will let you know when the next session starts.
