Parents WhatsApp Group

A good way to connect parents, promote peer mentorship and disseminate information is through whats app group. We had conducted a study to understand the feasibility of using social media WhatsApp groups to connect parents of children with disabilities. We found that 21% of parents in our program joined the WhatsApp group and it is a feasible method to connect parents for peer support and learning.
