Parenting a child with special needs can be overwhelming.

We get it. Let us help. 

The Arc’s award-winning Mobilizing Families training will help you unlock the mystery of disability resources by giving you the tools and information to help your child thrive. 

Participants will receive 12 hours of training split into easily manageable two-hour sessions each week. These classes that will build your skills and confidence, empowering you to effectively advocate for your children in all aspects of life. Each series includes an in-depth look at special education, healthcare, insurance, community resources, and so much more!

Parenting is hard enough already. You shouldn’t have to struggle to find answers you can trust. That’s why – through the support of The Daniels Fund – we are offering this amazing resource at no cost. That’s right, it’s really FREE:

  • FREE training materials
  • FREE childcare for all of your children
  • FREE dinner for your family

What are you waiting for? 

Our next series starts Thursday, September 28

*** As of 8/16/17, we have a limited number of seats remaining for the fall series beginning 9/28. Because of the high demand, our childcare is completely full at this time. You can use the Register Now button to complete registration. If you would like us to include you on a Waiting List for childcare, you will have an option to select this on the registration form. Questions? Call Genni at (303) 232-1338.
