Advocacy Support Groups

Support groups are created when people get together to network and share ideas about how to make life better for themselves or loved ones who have a disability. Some support groups are formed based on a common issue or goal. Other groups develop around a specific disability, like Down syndrome or Autism. There are also groups that serve siblings or self-advocates. Illinois has an active SIBS – Supporting Illinois Brothers and Sisters group.
