Tips and Resources from CTC Parents
Being the parent or caregiver of a child with special needs can be extremely challenging. Many CTC families are adept at finding online resources and support groups to join, and we’ve asked them to share their suggestions below. Please note that these are merely suggested resources shared by the families we serve and are not necessarily endorsed by CTC.
We also have a parent support group on Facebook! Current and former CTC parents and caregivers are welcome to request membership in this closed group.
Do you have a resource to share? Please let us know!
