Community Resources

We encourage families to become well-informed and empowered advocates for their child’s needs and, if able, in turn to use their personal experience to help other families advocate for their child.

We can suggest contacts that families may make if they wish to become more involved in working for the health and welfare of all children with disabilities and special health care needs on the local, regional and State level.
