Parent to Parent of NYS Regional Offices

Resource Author/Owner/Service Provider

Parent to Parent of New York State (P2P)

Description

Parent to Parent Regional Offices are staffed by people who have walked the walk and are available to help other families:

  • Support – Parent to Parent offers parents/caregivers the opportunity to connect one-to-one with a parent/caregiver of an individual with the same or similar disability or special health care need – someone who has “been there.”
  • Information & Referral – Parent to Parent helps families locate the information and services they need.
  • Training – Workshops are available on Understanding Medicaid Service Coordination, Record Keeping and Using a Health Care Notebook, and various other topics.

The organization’s parent-matching program is based on a model program used across the country. Parent to Parent assists a parent, who has a child with a developmental disability and/or special health care needs, by locating a volunteer support parent who has a similar experience. When a family initially receives a diagnosis, the emotional response can be overwhelming. Talking with another parent is an excellent resource with helping come to terms with emotional acceptance. You are not alone.
