Support groups

are designed to help people cope with all aspects of a diagnosis by providing a safe environment to share experiences and learn from others who are facing similar obstacles. Below are reason why joining a support group could have powerful benefits on the success of treatment and recovery.

Many studies have shown how a support group can reduce anxiety and stress, emotional distress, fatigue and pain, as well as improve mood, self-image, ability to cope with stress and feelings of control

Support groups are also offered to caregivers, family members and friends who may need encouragement while learning to cope with the diagnosis of a loved one.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE


Buddy Art is a program which provides Art Activities for kids with special needs and/or physical disabilities while also pairing them up with a neurotypical developing peer. Our vision for this program is to give our children with special needs something to do outside of school and also provide a way for all of our children to socialize with one another! Art has been proven to provide a therapeutic affect on both our emotional and physical well being.  

Here are 5 reasons how Buddy Art can impact a child.

1.  It allows a child to express themselves without having to be verbal.

2.  It facilitates connections with peers.

3.  It encourages turn taking.

4.  Buddy Art can help children grow confidence.

5. Buddy Art can also help improve motor skills and control, hand-eye coordination and muscle development can be achieved through the different modalities of art.

These are just 5 reasons Buddy Art can help. There are so many more reasons! The Brave Warrior Project will be announcing dates throughout the summer.
