There are many wonderful organizations which parents and caregivers can become involved with.  From sensory-friendly events, programs, recreation and social activities, to support groups, grants, outreach and parent trainings – these organizations provide a wide array of opportunities and services for children with special needs and their families.  What makes these organizations so great is that they were either started by parents of children with special needs, individuals with special needs, educators, or other community members who wish to connect with such families.  Each of them are wonderful and UNIQUE in their own way!
