Parents Helping Parents is here for you from the moment your child first has a suspected or confirmed disability diagnosis. You are not alone during this confusing and difficult time.

Sharing the Journey is a program to help you navigate and understand the complex and emotional process of raising a child with a disability. Connect with other parents going through similar experiences, and work with experienced facilitators to create a plan that will help you, your child, and your entire family thrive during this challenging time.

Sharing the Journey is a 4-part program. To get the full benefit, plan to attend all four sessions. 

Sharing the Journey sessions include:

  • Self-care Strategies & Understanding Parental Grief
  • Communication with Professionals & Advocacy
  • Using the 5 Protective Factors for Strong Families: resilience, positive social connections, concrete supports, knowledge of child development, and social and emotional communication
  • Community Support & Services

Participation in Sharing the Journey is limited to families who live in Santa Clara County with children ages 0 – 17. Attendance is limited to 8 families to allow for confidential sharing and discussion. 

Sharing the Journey is offered in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. Please contact us for more information.
