Parent to Parent
Parent to Parent is an organization that provides emotional support and information to families of children and adults with special needs in Washington State. Local county coordinators organize parent volunteers (Helping Parents) who also have children with special needs.
Using their own experience and knowledge and specific training from Parent to Parent, these volunteers can assist your family with:
- Emotional support
- Current information on disabilities
- Information on community resources
- Parent and sibling support meetings
- Educational workshops
You may visit the Parent to Parent facebook page and attend trainings to become a Parent to Parent volunteer. In addition to supporting individual families, Parent to Parent organizes and conducts presentations to parent groups, professionals and other organizations.
Parents may have questions and concerns regarding 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 experiences and feelings. Volunteer Helping Parents are available to provide support and information.
