    Are there support groups for people with albinism?

    My husband and I just gave birth to an albino child. As no one “outgrows” the physical symptoms, we are worried how it may affect our child emotionally through teenage and adulthood. Are there support groups available for those with albinism?

    A great place for you to start will be the Albinism Fellowship of Australia(AFA). As per their website “The AFA’s key purpose is to provide support, education and fellowship to those with albinism, parents of children with albinism as well as their families and friends” http://albinismaustralia.org/
    Im sure you will find some great support through this organisation.
