The Family Resource Guide provides information on local, state, and national resources available to meet the needs of South Dakota families raising children and youth with disabilities and/or special health care needs.  

Note: A comprehensive listing of all available resources across South Dakota is beyond the scope of this Guide. 
Because programs may change in scope, delivery or availability, a convenient Notes section on each page provides space to record dates of contact, up-to-date program information, or other important details.  Please contact South Dakota Parent Connection for additional resources not included in the Family Resource Guide at or 1-800-640-4553.
