Family Education & Training
A well-informed family makes all the difference in the quality of life that both children with disabilities and their family experience. Providing support for families, then, ensures that they are not only able to understand how to give the best care to their loved ones but have all the necessary resources to do so.
Our Family Education & Training sessions provide families with valuable resources and information about service alternatives available to them and how to gain access.
