After years of supporting families, the Down Syndrome Network of
Northern Nevada, Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities, and Family Ties of Nevada understand that peer
support is extremely important when a new family receives a diagnosis
that their child has a disability. Which is why we are happy to announce
Parent to Parent training.
Gain the skills needed to be there
for new parents. When parents of children with disabilities are asked
who can best support them emotionally,they most often mention other parents who share their experiences. Any parent who has received a diagnosis that their child has a disability knows how difficult the news can be. Your wisdom and experience will be invaluable to
another parent in need of advice and support.
Through our First Call program
parents/caregivers are given the opportunity to connect one-to-one with a
veteran parent/caregiver of a child with a disability. Become part of
our statewide network of trained volunteer support parents.
