Disability Network’s Parent Network connects parents, guardians and families of individuals with disabilities to one another for peer support, information and resources. Topics are chosen to help families learn about community resources as well as build skills. Information ranges from advocating, benefits planning, person-centered planning to group discussions about family life.
The Parent Network Workshops are held in a casual setting that allows you to network with other parents and guardians while sharing your personal experiences. Sharing in creative problem-solving leads to success! Our Parent Network Coordinator Nicole Miller has a wealth of knowledge and resources in her toolbox to share with the group. Nicole can answer your questions and help guide you on the right path with your specific needs.
Disability Network invites you to virtually join us for our Parent Network Zoom Coffee Talk Series for information and conservation. Parenting is a hard job. Join us and learn about resources that can be helpful and support your loved one as they grow.
