How can Parents Helping Parents help with concerns I have about my 0-5 year old?

Parents Helping Parents understands if you have concerns about your child’s development. You are in the right place if you are searching for information about early childhood special needs services and support. Together, we will address your concerns, identify your needs, and the resources to meet them. PHP staff will describe early intervention and related services. We will begin to build a bright future for you, your child, and your entire family.

We have created a video series to help you understand what services are available to help you in California, what tools and strategies might help your child if they have delays, and to help you with the transition from Early Start services to Special Education preschool services.  These videos and accompanying resource guides can be found at the Get An Early Start Video Series page.

Parents Helping Parents will help you create a plan of action for you, your child, and your entire family. We will explain the steps needed to start school services at age 3 through Early Start, including how to request an assessment for special education services (click here for template letter to your school district). We will explain what assessments are and what they mean. You will learn about assistive technology and how your child may benefit from it.

Parents Helping Parents will help you connect with other families who have children with special needs. You are not alone on your journey. Together, we will start building a bright future for your child with special needs!
