What We Do

Social Work

Social Work is the first point of contact between the family of a child an intellectual disability and/or autism and Cope Foundation.

Social workers meet with families to share information on a few things like:

Family history.

How the diagnosis will affect the family.

Services available.

Useful resources.

Social workers offer both practical support and emotional support to families.
