Neurodivergent Play & Support Groups

Athens-Local Support for Children and Their Caregivers

By Jessica Sweeney, Publisher Macaroni KID Athens August 29, 2023

These Athens-local play and support groups have been created to provide a welcoming and inclusive space for children with diverse neurological profiles, and their caregivers, to come together and share experiences while engaging in meaningful interactions. These groups recognize the uniqueness of each child's needs, whether they are on the autism spectrum, have ADHD, or possess other cognitive differences. The focus is on creating an environment where families can express themselves authentically and without judgment.  

Each group is facilitated by Katie Ruder from Arrow Speech Company in collaboration with Twisted Moon Studios, ReBlossom, Allegro: Lively Music for Children, and Adult and Child Counseling of Athens.
