What is Parent to Parent?
Learning that your child has a disability can be a traumatic experience. We offer emotional support and information about disabilities and community resources to parents who are just learning about or seeking new information on their child's disability, illness or special health care needs. Parent to Parent is a nationwide organization that offers local support and resources to families in need. Parents have many questions and concerns in coping with their child's needs and their own feelings. Personal support from another parent, who has a child with similar needs, can be helpful in coping with these challenging experiences and feelings. Helping Parents (volunteer peer mentors) are available to provide support and information.
Parent to Parent Support Programs of Washington State is a member of the Parent to Parent USA Alliance.
