As a professional serving adults with disabilities after they transition from school, I am thankful for Family to Family for providing trainings and resources.
Family To Family is a valuable resource for my family! I am so thankful for the volunteers who share their stories and train and guide us parents on this journey of parenting a child with special needs. I tell so many parents about this great organization and how they want to help us parents navigate the school years and transition to adulthood.
Family to family has made me feel welcome and supported. So many times I felt alone in my journey trying to know how I can help my son reach his goal in life. Now I know I am not alone. Having the opportunity to meet so many other mom's and see what they gave done to support their children with disabilities, has inspired me to continue and never give up. Thank you Family to Family for giving me hope and showing me it's possible to make a difference. All the training you provide has open my eyes. Thank you for your support to the communityand everything you do.
I had the questions for my son's ARD meeting and called Family to family network. They helped me clear the issue, emailed me the sample letters. It is great help for me to advocate for my son.
My son moved to foreign country at age of 3, grew up there, just came back recently. He is 20 years old. He just got admitted to school, but the evaluation takes time, he won't be able to go to school until fall. We do not know what is the next and what we do can now. The presenter's personal experience game me a clear picture where to start and what we can do and where to find help. The seminar is very informative and helpful for us. Thank you very much!
Today's placement class from Ms. Mary Jane is very helpful, it helps me to understand the procedure to decide placement, i am looking forward to joining your future class!
Thanks and Best Regards,
Family to Family Network provides much needed support for us, parents and caregivers, navigating this marathon life of parenting a child with special needs. I am always greeted with a warm welcome and a listening ear. Their own personal experiences make the training sessions very informative and helpful as I navigate transition planning for my 15 year old daughter. Many thanks to these wonderful people!!
It is a great way to connect with other families and share ideas. I liked how professional the presentation was. I am looking forward to registering for more classes.
This group is wonderful. Always providing information and opportunities for parents to learn about their child's uniqueness or disability. Extremely helpful with answers to your questions. Thank you F2F Network!
These guys put on the best programs to help with children with disabilities and their families. I attended a program about social security and it was very helpful. Please donate and keep their program going.
Thank you so much! Keep attending those training programs - Knowledge is power!
When I was completely lost and had no idea to help my family with our special needs, Family to Family was able to provide me with resources and advice. I can't say enough great things about the people and services there.
F2F has been a great resource for our daughter in advocating for public school, participate in local community events & very helpful resources.
I contacted Family To Family on behalf of a family in need. Leslie Lawson provided great resources and options for the family to consider. Family To Family can always be counted on to help families and their children with disabilities. They have been supporting families for many years.
Leslie is wonderful! Thank you!
Since the moment I moved to Houston, Leslie had been great help for me in identifying resources . I could trace Autism resources, schools information and attorney for guardianship easily with their help.
It was an outstanding experience! Leslie got back to me and answered all of my questions to the fullest within the hour. In addition, she sent a follow up e-mail with links to various community resources. She asked me to call back with any question after reviewing it. They are friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and very eager to help! I have nothing, but positive things to say about this organization.
Leslie is such an asset! Thank you so much!
I have attended F2F conferences and trainings throughout the years, and their website Texas Project First, http://texasprojectfirst.org/, has INVALUABLE information about special education services, events, and resources. What I most appreciate about Family to Family Network is there personal attention and assistance! When I desperately needed guidance to keep my son with down syndrome included in the classroom and receiving the services he needed, they sat down and walked me through laws, made calls to district personnel, and encouraged me knowing that they had "been there done that!" Hard working, dedicated, and great asset to our community! VERY GRATEFUL for their services!!
Our family has a precious member who is a low functioning autistic child. As he approaches young adulthood, we began due diligence and therein connected with Family to Family Network. The contact was compassionate, an incredible listener and was also parenting an adult child with autism.
We learned about certain options which lead us to additional contacts. Through this research, we became aware of places within Texas that may be suitable for channeling energy and proper academic education environments to help our loved one excel in his world. It was the answer to many heart-felt conversations and prayers.
Thank you so much!
Can't say enough wonderful things about Family to Family Network. Leslie Lawson, with Family to Family, returned my e-mail immediately. She helped me over the phone for almost an hour, continued to do research on her own, found answers/resources and called me back all in the same day. What a blessing to have an entity that helps you to understand and navigate the world of special needs.
Thank you so much - Leslie is wonderful!
The staff at Family to Family Network have been extremely helpful to me in navigating the special education system in Texas. I have attended many of their conferences as well and the knowledge I have gained has helped me be a better advocate for my son and for others with disabilities. I am especially thankful for their strong belief in person centered thinking and valuing each person. Their guidance has changed the course of my son's future !
Thank you for acknowledging the importance of valuing all people with disabilities!
