Special Needs Support Groups--Burlington and Camden Counties

Halloween is barely over and I am already preparing my Thanksgiving menu and checking names off my Christmas list.  I love the holidays, but just when I think my stress level couldn’t be any higher, this wonderful time of the year rolls around and I have to juggle the needs of my children and the desire to make this a great holiday season for them. For those of you who are in the same boat and in need of some support, here are a few support groups in the Burlington & Camden county areas.
