Support for parents of children with special needs
Learning that your child has a disability or chronic health need can be a traumatic experience. Parents have many questions and concerns when coping with their child’s needs and their own feelings. You are not alone. We have been there. We can also direct you to community resources for your entire family.
Personal support from another parent, who has a child with similar needs, can be helpful in coping with many challenging experiences and feelings. Trained volunteer mentors called “Helping Parents” are available to provide support and information to other parents. All information is kept confidential.
Your experience can help others cope and grow. We welcome parents whose children have a disability or chronic health need to become a volunteer mentor or “Helping Parent.” Our training occurs annually or as needed. In addition, we can always use more volunteers for our annual Skagit Buddy Walk and other events. Contact us today
