10 Years Strong: Patiently Standing Together for Change

MISSION

Our mission is to raise public awareness of developmental disabilities and to impact public policy while providing education and resources to families, children and adults. SNN serves as a link between under-served communities and mainstream developmental disability organizations and governmental institutions which often fail to address issues specific to these communities. SNN firmly believes that dignity, hope, and opportunity are the birthright of all children.

PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING SPECIAL NEEDS NETWORK

With your support we are determined to raise the bar.


PAM online

This comprehensive training program is modeled after Areva Martin’s book “The Everyday Advocate” and was turned into an online educational series for our signature PAM program. This series is tailored for parents of newly diagnosed children, advocates and medical, educational, and human service professionals including social workers, teachers, child care providers looking to expand or learn the early steps in becoming an advocate. If this is you this is a “must take” online program.
