Families of children with special needs benefit greatly from the opportunity to link with other families in similar situations.
Families who have experienced similar issues are often the best source of practical and emotional support.
Kalparrin will try to meet parent requests to be put in touch with other families whose child has a similar condition to that of their child. This is often requested in the case of rarer conditions. When completing the Membership Form, families are asked if they wish their name to be added to the Parent Link register. Prior to giving a name to another parent, the Family Support Officer will contact families to discuss the request. Names and contact details will only be given out with permission.
