Mommy Jo leads an Family Support Group

ASP Diliman President Josephine Palomares welcomed participants to a Family Support Group held in Autism Society Philippines National Headquarters last 16 July 2016. ASP’s monthly family support group sessions bring together parents, siblings and other family members to talk about their journey in living with autism. Participants share their experiences and draw enlightenment and strength from others going through the same challenges.

The discussion reinforced that importance of a support from peers who can understand one's situation.  As the group shared stories about their children and their journey, they realized that mothers are not meant to be "superwomen" -- they need to give themselves a break at times.
