As your resource center, we are here to provide you with the information you need to make decisions for yourself or your children with disabilities. We like to consider ourselves a one-stop shop for information, referral, education, training, and peer to peer support.
- We answer questions and provide assistance for any disability, any age.
- We can teach you to advocate for yourself or your child and over time your child will learn to self – advocate.
- We help you navigate support systems and overcome challenges in these settings.
INFORMATION AND REFERRAL
We provide information about disabilities and direct you to the resources you need for services or additional information. We also have an extensive lending library with topics ranging from education to specific health issues. This library is available to you, your child’s educators, and health professionals.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Workshops and trainings are coordinated and presented on topics relevant to the issues facing persons with disabilities and their families. Topics include Basic Special Education Rights, Individualized Education Plans (IEPS), Transition Planning, Early Intervention, Discipline, Behavior Rights, Organizational Skills, Communication Skills, Special Needs Trust, Age of Majority Planning, Disability Specific Topics and more. If you have a topic you think would be of interest to other families or professionals, let us know and we are always looking to provide new topics to you.
PEER TO PEER SUPPORT
Our trained, knowledgeable staff is parents of children with disabilities or individuals with disabilities. They are here to provide you with the support you need.
