Peer to Peer Support Information and Referral – Parents need to be provided with good information and connected with appropriate services. Rather than spending endless hours searching the internet for appropriate services, our staff has already done most of this work. We know what services are available through the state, parish and local systems. We’ve navigated these complex systems and know where the barriers to service exist.

Some of those include IEP Boot Camps; Progress Monitoring; Communication Skills; Driving with a Disability; Transitioning from High School to Work or Post-Secondary School, Basic Individual with Disabilities Education Rights, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and more.
