 "South Dakota Parent Connection has helped me in so many ways. My daughter received a brain injury.  Until then, she was a typical child. Since her injury we have struggled financially and emotionally. We didn't know where to begin to research or how to go about everything we were now facing. SD Parent Connection helped reduce the overwhelming feeling to a manageable task by narrowing options down to what specifically pertained to us. We also received an organizer for all of our daughter's medical papers which is a wonderful tool to keep everything in one place. I have called them numerous times. They have always been very polite and helpful. Without this organization, I would be overwhelmed and very frustrated. I am thankful for this organization." - Parent
