Young Girl  "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

Baby Boy"When we found out our second child was going to be born with a rare heart defect we had no idea where to turn or what to do.When we first talked with SD Parent Connection they had a list of resources for us. 

They had contacts for Sioux Falls, but they also had resources for travel because we would have to go to Ann Arbor, MI.  They went out of their way to have specific names and direct lines for different individuals to help us.

They also supplied us with a folder (FILE) to keep our son's papers and records organized!  SD Parent Connection helped with everything and they are a resource that we are blessed to have been in contact with.   The process of Medicaid, travel expenses, and reimbursement could have been a mess, but with their help it was a smooth process.

This is an organization who truly cares about their clients and treats everyone with dignity and respect and that is what we appreciated the most!"

Teenager girl doing a high kick along side her Mother"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."
