WHAT WE DO…
Families Together’s programs are designed to build and sustain strong, healthy, informed, and actively involved family members who can work together to improve the lifelong outcomes for their child or sibling with a disability.
OUTREACH AND SUPPORT:
Families Together staff provide support through phone, email and Home visits to families who call in with difficult situations. We are able to support questions about your child’s IEP/504 and can attend meetings with you, for additional support.
POSITIVE PARENTING FOR CHALLENGING BEHAVIORS CLASSES:
The class is taught in a series of two sessions. Parents learn why their children have difficult behaviors, how to prevent unwanted behaviors, and how to teach replacement behaviors.
PLAY GROUPS AND SUMMER CAMPS:
Playgroups are designed to for parents to attend with their child and focus on supporting social/emotional development. The summer programs are an opportunity to connect with other parents and community programs.
RESPITE: PARENT’S NIGHT OUT
This program is designed to provide much needed breaks for parents or full time care providers through childcare ‘night out’. This is presently being offered through out reimbursement program but will return to site care once it is safe to do so.
FAMILY SUPPORT GROUPS:
IEP/504 support groups are designed to provide the opportunity for parents and caregivers to meet and discuss topics around advocacy and to network together.
Parenting support groups are designed with “mini” lessons that support both the parent and child with topics of parenting.
FAMILY UNITY RECREATION ACTIVITIES:
FURA ‘s provide families an opportunity to have a structured recreation activity with other families who have children with disabilities. Parent’s network and exchange information. Children renew friendships. A good time is had by all.
