My Journey in Holland

Holland – A support group for families who have received a new diagnosis for their child.

At the beginning of the year my (then)fiancé and I were in such a terrible place in our relationship.  Family outings were a struggle.  Our home life was busy and complicated.  We couldn’t agree on     parenting our 3 year old son, who has Autism and sensory  processing disorder.  This diagnosis came with so many new things, we didn’t know where to start or who to turn to for  advice.  Then one day I got an email saying that a new Holland session was starting in the Spring.  I was  hesitant to sign up for this class, but in the end, I decided I didn’t have anything to lose and I called to register.

When the day came to start Holland, my  fiancé and I were greeted by the staff with welcoming arms.  I knew then that I had found my home.  In the group we discovered that we weren’t the o


nly ones going through this and we got a lot of help along the way.

When we graduated from Holland we came out stronger as a couple and as parents. My husband could finally understand our son on a new level, and was able to communicate and interact with him in fun and successful new ways.

We were married this Fall.  If it wasn’t for Holland, I’m not sure where our relationship would be today.  Not to mention I gained some awesome new friends from the group as well. I can’t thank  Parent to Parent enough for everything they have done for
