Testimonial

“MPEG has been an invaluable resource and community for me in navigating motherhood with a child with ADHD. Being apart of MPEG has helped me through my own grieving process that I experienced after my child’s adhd dx and it’s allowed me to find greater comfort in talking about it outside the group which was something I wasn’t comfortable with before. When I first got the dx for my child I felt so alone in the parenting struggles we had but this group helped me to realize just how not alone I am! I look forward to being in a group of other parents who know the struggle without having to say it, or where I can say it, without fear of judgement! And the speakers MPEG has are top notch! I’ve learned many new tools that I’ve been able to bring home and incorporate with my family from the incredible speakers. I really enjoy the format of the meetings offering education from specialists while also offering a community to connect with.”
