In brief: Support groups

Support groups include Easter Seals, United cerebral palsy, Muscular dystrophy Association.
Your doctor should be able to direct you to a wider variety of support organizations in your community, including early intervention groups.

In brief: Start with NAMI

It depends on where you are and what the disorder is.
The national alliance for the mentally ill can help identify local resources for you. You can also ask your pediatrician or mental health care provider for information about parent support.
