Equipment and Resources Links
Parent Connect is about empowering ourselves to be our childrens best advocates! There is not one parent who could say that they knew more at the start of the journey than they do now. The only way we can combat the ever changing ‘system’ and red tape is to understand how it works . Our lives needn’t be a battle if we have the tools to ask the right questions of the right people.
Parent Connect is always trying to update our information and if you have new resources that you think would help other families please contact us.
