Virtual Parent Groups

Join us!

 Friends is really excited to begin offering Virtual Parent Groups. A space for parents, guardians, and relatives to connect, share ideas and concerns, and learn helpful strategies to best support their young person who stutters.

Each session will be limited to the first 12 people to register. You will know that you got a ‘spot’ when you receive a registration confirmation email with the Zoom info. We will work to add more parent groups if there is interest! 

Please register at least one day in advance. Once registered, please email the facilitator directly with topics you may be interested in discussing. Their email addresses will be found in their biographies below.
