Parents & Friends Group
Merriang SDS Parents & Friends Support Group meetings are held on the last Friday of every month between 10-12pm. Over the years we have invited guest speakers from a range of services including Autism Victoria, Association for Children with a Disability, Future Planning and Carers Victoria. Merriang SDS Parents& Friends also receive funding from various organizations which enable us to enjoy a morning tea or luncheon at a local cafe or restaurant.
Occasionally we are able to organize babysitting for siblings so parents/carers can relax, make new friends, learn from one another and discuss issues of concern regarding themselves or their children with special needs.
