Does Your Child Have a Special Need?  Then So Do You!

Texas Parent to Parent is a nonprofit organization that was created by parents to provide support and information for families of children with disabilities, chronic illness and other special needs throughout the state of Texas.  The majority of our Board of Directors and staff are parents of children with disabilities or chronic illness.  Our staff and volunteers have many years’ experience in providing parent to parent support.

Mission

Texas Parent to Parent empowers families to be advocates for their children with disabilities, chronic illness, and other special needs through peer support, resource referral, and public awareness. 

We believe that peer support is the best way to assist a family on the journey of raising a child with special needs.  The sharing of joy, frustration and hope is one of the most powerful experiences a parent can receive.  We also believe that parents are the experts on their child, and that the children are our best teachers.

Our Goals Are

We provide the following services:

We are affiliated with other statewide parent to parent programs through the University of Kansas’ Beach Center.  We share information, best practices, and find matches for families that their individual state is unable to match.  We share and learn from each other how best to provide support to families.

For more information, please contact Texas Parent to Parent at 3710 Cedar St., Box 12, Austin, TX  78705, (866) 896-6001, (512) 458-8600, or www.main.org/txp2p
