Through the Looking Glass (TLG) is a nationally recognized center that has pioneered research, training, and services for families in which a child, parent or grandparent has a disability or medical issue.

TLG provides direct services, information and referral to a diverse group of parents with disabilities and their families. These include parents with physical and visual disabilities, deaf parents, parents with intellectual disabilities, and parents with diverse medical conditions. TLG provides information, training and consultation to parents with disabilities, family members and professionals nationally and internationally. Direct services are also available primarily to local parents residing in the San Francisco Bay Area.

TLG is a disability community based nonprofit organization, which emerged from the independent living movement, and was founded in 1982 in Berkeley, California. Our mission is "To create, demonstrate and encourage non-pathological and empowering resources and model early intervention services for families with disability issues in parent or child which integrate expertise derived from personal disability experience and disability culture."

TLG's staff includes psychologists, researchers, occupational therapists, rehabilitation counselors, social workers, marriage, child and family therapists, developmental specialists, and childbirth educators. The staff have diverse cultural backgrounds, and nearly 80% of the 30 staff members are disabled, parents of disabled children, or members of families with disabilities.
