This group will run con-currently with a Wally's Play Group (social skills group) specifically for twice-exceptional children in 3rd or 4th grade, which will be happening in our suite at the same time as the parenting group. Contact Karrin Grutz: http://www.wallysplaygroups.com for more information about that group. Parents of children not in 3rd or 4th grade are welcome to join the parenting group.
