Parent and Family Support
Family Liaison Project
The Family Liaison Project (FLP) is dedicated to providing peer and emotional support and information to families whose children have special needs. This program is very unique as the staff and all of our volunteers are parents who also have children with special needs. We contact families only with permission or personal request. It is our goal to provide families with individual support.
This is what to expect:
- Respect in regards to the family’s wants, needs and wishes.
- Contact by staff or Supported Parent Volunteer who have been trained to support families who have children with special needs.
- A partner in seeking out information about the child’s disability and individual needs.
- Emotional support through such things as illness, diagnosis, hospitalization, care conferences, and the IFSP/IEP meeting, as requested.
- Much more, but most important, a FRIEND who has walked down the same path.
Families who have a child:
- Ages pre-birth through six years.
- With a developmental disability or at risk of developing a disability.
- Hospitalized or living within the geographic area served by the Family Liaison Project.
- Who is medically fragile or has other medical issues.
The seven counties we serve are:
