Frequently Asked Questions

Does PHP only serve families with young children who have special needs?

PHP helps families who have children of any age with special needs. PHP's family resource and service staff field calls from families having children from infancy through their child's adulthood into their 50's and 60's! It is never too late to call PHP! Adult siblings who have responsibility for the care of their sibling with a disability call PHP too.

Does PHP offer therapy?

Although Parents Helping Parents does not offer therapies of any kind, we are happy to provide information and direction on resources and referrals.

What kinds of support and information groups do you have at PHP and when do they meet?

PHP’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are specific to a certain condition/disability or language. A current list of SIGs can be viewed on our Support page.

Most groups meet at a regular time each month. Some provide lectures by a variety of professionals on different topics of interest while others primarily provide a social opportunity for parents/caregivers to talk together. Some groups provide a combination of these things. You are welcome to attend any support group meeting or lecture that is of interest and relevance to you. PHP staff also has information on non-PHP support groups in the community.
