Many support groups within the special needs community are diagnosis centric for the purpose of discussing the children’s needs. Steel Magnolia Moms, however, focuses on the Mom.
What We Do
We share our knowledge and resources, but more importantly, we encourage moms to find themselves again. We offer support in a variety of places, programs and events.
Having a child with special needs is isolating. It’s scary. Motherhood is commonly said to be the most important job and greatest source of joy, but for a special needs mom, that can suddenly be shaped, defined, and limited by what their child can’t do. We remind moms to take time for themselves, have fun and connect.
