Become a Volunteer Supporting Parent

Parents who are raising a child with disabilities or special healthcare needs often feel overwhelmed, helpless and alone. Looking back, many parents say what helped them the most was talking to another parent. Do you have experiences you could share with other parents? Consider becoming a P2P Supporting Parents by completing an online training program that will:
