Welcome Our intent is to help you, the parent, find a place to start in your quest for services and benefits for your child, no matter what the health issue or disability. As a parent, learning that your child has a severe handicapping medical condition or disability is one of the most frightening things you may ever have to face. You must know (and believe) there are many things that you as a parent can do for your child, regardless of what their diagnosis may be. Taking control of the situation is a very important first step. There is a great deal of responsibility involved in the treatment and care of your child and their medical condition. At times that responsibility can feel overwhelming. Taking baby steps, learning everything you can about your child's diagnosis and prognosis are all things you, the parent, can do to help lighten your load. We've put together a few things here to help get you started with this process.
