Each Guide gives parents of children with disabilities a step-by-step walkthrough of the topic, such as:
How to Create an Effective IEP
Get ready for your IEP meeting, take a look at the IEP form, and walk into your next IEP meeting feeling confident about getting your child the services they need to do their best in school.
How to Access Special Education
Before your child can get an IEP, find out if they qualify for special education services. We’ll tell you how to get an education evaluation – at school or independently – and why it’s important.
How to Apply for SSI
See if your child or adult family member qualifies for SSI. If so, we’ll show you how to start the application for SSI – and while you’re at it, for other benefits you may qualify for.
How to Optimize your Health Insurance
Make the most of your health insurance by seeing what your options are. There may be new healthcare services that your child can get based on their disability.
How to Navigate Guardianship
Prepare for your child’s 18th birthday and the ‘transfer of rights’ by planning ahead. Use this Guide to see all your guardianship options, download the forms you need, and know what questions to ask.
