When a group of autism moms south of Atlanta connected online to share suport, resources, and ideas, Southside Support was born. No longer just an autism support group, Southside Support seeks to connect families and individuals with all types of disabilties to each other and their communites. Now, many years later, Southside Support offers opportunities for connection, education, and inclusion through its Special Needs Accomodation Zone (SNAZ), Special Needs Alliance of Professionals (SNAP), educational symposiums, and support meetings.
