G.E.A.R. is the only resource that has truly made a difference in our lives. Services, doctors, school, and other institutional or community resources haven’t been able to do enough, because they don’t know what our lives are like or how to help. They think they do, but they don’t. Validation and support from other parents who have been through what you’re going through is powerfully stabilizing and soothing. We are then able to access our own ‘knowing’ that is the base of what our kids truly need to stabilize themselves.
