"SD Parent Connection is always able to give us the road map."
"I first learned about South Dakota Parent Connection (SDPC) shortly after my youngest daughter was born with Down syndrome. I have used SDPC as a resource countless times. They have helped inform me of my daughter's rights for an appropriate education, provided parent training, and when IEPs were difficult they provided me with a Navigator to help me work with my school system.
SDPC doesn't promise that they can fix everything, but they have always been able to help me understand the many different situations that are part of the daily life of an individual with special needs. SDPC gets me to the right place and always helps me to see that my child's disability is not nearly as important as her abilities."
Your contribution to SDPC will help us 'kick up' family outreach to new heights!
