STRONG FAMILIES. STRONG FUTURES.
The mission of Vermont Family Network is to empower and support all Vermont children, youth, and families, especially those with disabilities or special health needs.
I’m concerned about my child’s health, education, or well-being.
Family Support will listen and offer support and resources to assist you in being your child’s best advocate. We are families of children with special needs ourselves and understand the challenges and gifts our children offer. We can talk about medical diagnoses or challenges at school, home, or in the community.
I want to learn more about Puppets in Education programs.
Puppets in Education is an educational puppet troupe, but the puppets do so much more than teach! They empower kids to talk about really important and sometimes difficult issues, including bullying, child abuse, drugs, autism, and health.
I want to advocate on a systems level.
Join VFN’s advocacy program that works alongside families and partners to educate decision-makers. The Advocacy and Action program centers family voices on needed change to better support families with children who have disabilities or special health needs. We provide resources and opportunities for families to connect, learn, and act.
