Do you need help being the parent you want to be?

Did your child get a new diagnosis and you are not sure where to start?

Do you want your child to do better in school?

Are you losing sleep, possibly your job, due to the calls you are getting from childcare, the school or day program? 

You are not alone and help is available!

Providers: Do you need help meeting the needs of your students or clients?

BCBA students and BCBAs: do you need supervision or mentoring to expand your scope of practice?

Knowing where to start when providing care for someone can be frustrating and overwhelming. Parent and Caregiver Support Services are a great first step. Services are individualized based on your family's needs.  Support Services can include getting information and referrals to services and community resources; help with problem solving service access issues; help accessing a needed support such as working with an insurance provider or accessing educational services for your child. It can include accessing resources for an aging brother or sister with a disability or for an elderly parent or family member.

  • people struggling to get services to meet their family's or child's needs.
