PHP is Here for YOU

When you get started at Parents Helping Parents, you can receive critical support and information about your journey with your loved one of any age with any disability. Your concerns will be heard, specific needs will be addressed, options will be presented and considered, and you will receive support and many resources. Use this information to set a course of action to improve the life of your loved one.

PHP staff members, most of whom are parents of loved ones with disabilities themselves, can support you with information based on your child’s disability, diagnosis or concern, age, and grade in school. You can also learn about special education, public benefits, important transitions, assistive technology, and more. Perhaps most importantly, you can connect with other parents and families like yours! Email us any time to get started at Parents Helping Parents!
