"Having a child with special health care needs is a life-altering experience... but with the support of another parent we begin to see through the cracks and find joy in places we never could have imagined. Our journey continues, but this time we feel we will survive because we know another parent who has."
Peer support is very popular these days but parent-to-parent programs have been using peer support since the 1970’s. Sharing experiences with other parents is the key to what Texas Parent to Parent (TxP2P) does and has been proven to help families. Our services and programs are all family-centered in order to provide support, information, and education to as many families as we can.
The Texas Parent to Parent staff are parents of children with disabilities, chronic illness, or special health care needs. We have also spoken to thousands of families over the years. We are here to help – give us a call at 866-896-6001 or 512-458-8600.

TxP2P helped with both of these sites, and we feel they can be very helpful to a new parent or a parent new to an issue around their child. We especially recommend looking at the videos:
