Navigate Life Texas: Resources for kids with disabilities and special needs

Got Facebook?

03/30/2016 | Published by: Kelly Mastin

Many people log in to Facebook everyday to see what’s occurring. It’s a place to catch up on news events, Hollywood happenings, blogs, and a way to check in with our friends far and near. But did you know it’s also a place where you can find support?

There are many Facebook groups created for families living with a disability. These groups are helpful for sharing resources and supporting families in their daily lives.

A great way to find Facebook pages is to search this website NLT main page. A quick search on this website for “Facebook” will result in over 400 links to Facebook pages for families. It takes only a few minutes to scan through the 10 pages of search results to find groups that might be a good fit for your family.

There are disability-specific groups listed. There are groups for people with Down syndrome, ADHD, cluster seizures, Rett Syndrome, autism, cancer, and many others. Other groups are for a variety of disabilities, offering a broader range of support.

There are groups started by churches and other religious organizations whose ministry includes families with disabilities. Many groups focus on a smaller region of Texas around the organization’s location, while others support individuals all over the state

Some of the groups are open groups. This means that the public can see the posts, but until they are a member, they can’t comment. With an open group, you can just click on the link for the page.

When you get to the page, you can click Like, Join, and/or Follow. Once you click to join the group and receive approval from the moderator, you are a member of the group and can see all the posts. Many of the posts will show up on your newsfeed, but sometimes you must go to the Facebook page to see all of the posts.

Other groups are closed groups. Having a closed group ensures that topics and discussions stay private. No one can see the posts or the comments unless they are an approved member of the group. To join a closed group, just click the button to join or follow. The moderator will provide the access. Don’t hesitate to ask to join a group that might help you.

In order to join a “secret” group, a person has to be added or invited by a current member. The name of the Facebook group is visible in web searches to only current and former members. Unlike the “open” and “closed” groups, the public is unable to see who are members. All posts and discussions are hidden until the person seeking membership is approved by the moderator.

Facebook is good for many things. Supporting families living with disability is a definite plus. It is encouraging to read posts from other parents who can relate to your daily life. Get started today.
