Two parents on the West Dunbartonshire Transitions Project have set up an online support group through Facebook.
Parents and Carers Together is a place for people who care for sons, daughters or loved ones with learning disabilities, autism, ADHD and any other additional support needs. It is a closed Facebook group, which means that only members are able to see what is being said. As part of the group, parents and carers can come together for support - whether it is to rant and rave about challenges, share top tips, offer advice or just call upon a friendly ear.
You can find the group here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/parentsandcarerstogether
