Parent Advocate Leaders Support Group

What is the Parent Advocate Leaders Support Group (PALS)?

PALS is a support group for parents. Parents learn how to advocate on behalf of their children with special needs. PALS started as a program aimed at helping parents and other caregivers. It has grown into a network of informed parent leaders. We hope to make you more informed and more actively involved in your child’s health care.

Our two main goals are to:

  1. Create a parent network.
  2. Provide parents with health resources.
