Maurice Rush Foundation

“Au-Parents Need[.]” Virtual Parent Support Groups caters to Parents/Caregivers of autistic individuals (regardless of residence). “A group where Autism parents can talk about what they need to.” The groups function under the auspices of The Maurice Rush Foundation and are held every Wednesday at 8pm CT/9pm ET. Groups are therapeutic in nature and welcome an array of topics to be discussed, as well as various professional speakers for meaningful conversations that yield learning to both the parent AND speaker. Parents can sign up via www.mrushfoundation.org or www.auparentsneed.com to gain access to group membership. Parents can also send a direct message via our Facebook/Instagram social media platforms at @mrushfoundation.  Maurice Rush Foundation Flyer
