"We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say, 'It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.' Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes."
and providing each other resources, experience, and support
What we are working on
Inclusion is everything, but we would also like to carve out spaces where families with special needs can find folks with similar experiences. Play dates where parents don't need to worry about glares or judgment.
Collectively, parents have so much knowledge! Here are ways we can share resources with each other:
Check out our resources page (email us if you have some to add!)
Our FB Page will link current or upcoming events and relevant resources
Our FB discussion group allows parents to connect to each other
We will share "Resource Spotlights" to highlight valuable resources
We are committed to making resources easy to access for families in our community.
We have begun collecting publications from advocacy and educational agencies. We will have these brochures/pamphlets available at all events. Check out this google list and feel free to reach out if you would like something.
We are working with the Warminster and Southampton libraries to ensure that they are well stocked with information to share with families. Contact the children's librarians for more info!
We are plan to have a monthly speaker series that speaks to the needs of our community. Stay tuned... (or contact us to help us plan)
Let's enjoy some time to ourselves! With the opportunity to share with other parents what your IEP journey has been; what you experiences of diagnosis have been; where the best places are to receive services. Stay tuned (or help us plan!)
Head over to our "Blog" page which is really just a way to learn from each other. And maybe collect and pass on valuable information about ways WE best learn and receive information.
