Developmental Differences

We see you, parents of kids with special needs. Yours is not an easy road, but NPN has many resources to help you along, whether you’ve just received a diagnosis or you’re looking for further supports for your older child.

 

Our monthly Developmental Differences Parent Support Group has been making parents and caregivers feel less alone for nearly 10 years. Also celebrating its 10th birthday, the annual Developmental Differences Resource Fair brings together therapy providers, schools and fun activities for kids with special needs. And our library of videos on developmental differences offers tips and strategies on everything from potty training to IEPs.

 

The best part: All of our developmental differences resources are free to members and non-members alike.
