We provide comprehensive effective care to children with special needs, a highly specialized, labor-intensive endeavor. We work with the family and community surrounding the child in a multi-disciplinary, holistic, empowering and supportive way. This approach is the most effective method in making meaningful changes for the child and in the long-term health and self-advocacy for the family.

Our Family Resource Center provides a place of learning, comfort and courage for families of children with disabilities. Resource Center staff are also parents of children with a disability and are trained to provide parent-to-parent connections and support. After age 3, children transition into the Empowerment Center where advocates trained in special education laws provide support and advocacy to parents as they build new relationships with their local school district and other agencies.
