Families like ours

Do you have a child with a disability? Perhaps you are a grandparent or caregiver? Let’s connect!


All of CHP’s family programs are open to parents and children of all abilities. But CHP also has a special networking and outreach program for families raising a child with disabilities of any kind.

From informal hikes at accessible parks and paths to playgroups and online support groups, these programs are created and led by parents for parents of children with special needs.

Join us and make lasting connections with these programs and families like ours.

Individual Education Plan (IEP) 101

Children with special needs are entitled to the Individualized Education Plan, which is developed in collaboration with parents/caregivers and school education specialists.

IEPs are intended to ensure that special needs students receive the best possible education and support services.

This event is free and open to all, but you must register for the Zoom link.
