Programs and services are provided at no charge

Programs and services for families:

  • Assistance and support at all ages and stages of your child's development from birth to age 26.
  • Individual problem-solving support to understand and access the programs, health plans, and services your child may need.
  • Accurate, authoritative information related to your child's disability or special health condition.
  • Special education consultations, training, and problem-resolution.
  • Parent-to-parent connections with a trained parent "mentor" who has a child with a similar diagnosis and is skilled at providing information and support.
  • Workshops and training geared to increase advocacy skills, and improve your ability to work with professionals on your child's educational and medical needs.
  • Referrals to agencies, organizations, and community resources with expertise to meet your family needs.

    Our staff includes many families of children with disabilities or special health care needs.

    I’m so grateful to learn that Raising Special Kids is truly here to offer support. There is no catch, no gimmick, and no charge. I have found emotional support from people who understand what it is like to have a child with special needs.
