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.

Puppets with children

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.
