Facilitated Peer Support Group for Parents that have Children with Disabilities

Our Facilitator:

Lori Spencer is a mom with a child that was diagnosed with a disability 18 years ago. She understands the fears and uncertainty parents goes through to help their child excel within their disability.

Lori has facilitated many support groups with the goal that everyone will have a chance to share equally and that feedback from others will be solution driven. You will not only feel supported by peers, but experiences will be shared, so you will feel you have options to help your child.

Lori is also a certified special education teacher that taught school for 19 years. She taught a self-contained classroom for 8 years for children with mild and moderate disabilities. She was not just her student's teachers, but she was also their case manager, and developed many Individual Education Plans for her students. She has walked through the IEP process many times as both developer and administrator of the IEP. Lori also taught in middle school as a resource teacher, and as a co-teacher in a regular education classroom.

She would love to share her experiences to help parents navigate through the school process.

This support group will be anonymous, so everyone will feel safe that what they share will stay in the group. Everyone will be reminded of this at the beginning of each meeting.

You will have an opportunity to sign-up for two groups a week. They will only cost $15.00 per 1-hour session.

Please call me, Lori Spencer at 404-542-2795 if interested! She would love to talk with you!!
