Within the church, we have a Special Families Support Group with outside speakers coming in to speak on topics that may be helpful to our families & trips out; and we run a midweek fellowship and study group, as well as having lunches for parents once/twice term and on special occasions.
More information will be up-loaded for ideas on how to support families in due course, but some of the past programmes from our Special Families Support Group are included here: spring 2016; autumn 2016; spring 2017; autumn 2017

If you have parents in your congregation who have recently had a diagnosis, there are organisations who can offer support and advice. In Surrey, you can find such advice & support here: http://www.whitelodgecentre.co.uk/children-young-peoples-services/parent-supportface2face
