Our Parent Training and Information Center provides training, resources, and individual assistance at no cost to parents who have children with disabilities and/or special health care needs. For more than 35 years, our workshops and individualized assistance have helped parents understand the complex systems of special education, healthcare, and community services.
Our Family-to-Family Health Information Center provides individual information on how to advocate for children who have special health care needs. We also provide information and resources to families regarding medical home, health insurance availability and more.
Our Parent-to-Parent program matches parents, who have experience parenting a child with a disability and/or special health care need with with another parent who may have a newly diagnosed child, needs support during the transition process, medical issues, and more.
The Kansas State Department of Education has contracted with Families Together, Inc. to coordinate the Education Advocate Program. Education Advocates “step into the role” of the parent in special education matters and advocate for the child/student. Advocates should be willing to assert their rights as the legal educational decision maker and effectively advocate for the student while working to build a strong school team around the student.
