Parent-Focused Resources

Parent and Caregiver Voices Project—The mission of the Parent and Caregiver Voices Project is to hear from parents and caregivers who have children with medical, developmental, and behavioral conditions to share about their experiences. We hope to create a space where parents and caregivers, who are experts in their own experiences, can share their knowledge with all of you, as it can be so easy to feel alone on this journey. We feel strongly that caregiver wellbeing is just as important as child wellbeing, and this series focuses on the caregiver’s needs.
