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.
You will find many support groups on the Illinois Life Span website, using the Search box above.
