Our support group is based in South Tipperary and most of us live within 15 miles of Cahir. We usually meet in Cahir House Hotel. We have no set day for meeting as there are only a few of us at the moment and we just arrange a day that suits everyone when we can.
Having only become aware that I am the parent of a gifted child in the last 18 months, I have found this group invaluable. To be able to talk (laugh, cry, moan) etc to people who know what you are going through and who may have gone through it before you and come out the other end, is a huge help and support for any parent who has a child that doesn’t fit the “norm”. The other parents in the group have kept me sane through what has undoubtedly been the hardest year of my life (so far, he is only 8 after all).
If anyone out there in Tipperary is looking for support, you can contact us at gastipperary[at]gmail[dot]com
Next meeting: Thursday 21st May 2015, at 10am in Cahir House Hotel.
