Family Support

TEACCH Mother’s Group

Chapel Hill (Orange County)

Services/Programs Description

The Chapel Hill TEACCH Center Mothers’ group was started in 1986 and is for mothers of children and young adolescents with autism. The two main purposes of the group are the support and information. The format is informal with each meeting focused on a specific topic (e.g., behavior problems, siblings). Although the group has a facilitator, the mothers are encouraged to take the lead in talking about whatever aspects of the topic are relevant for them.


Attendees must be a parent/guardian of a current TEACCH client.
