Anyone else missing the quick chats where you run into a parent, friend or teacher at appointments, in the community or at school?
We wanted to recreate these conversations virtually.
This group is open to parents, educators, providers, advocates and others involved in the care of children and youth with special health needs and disabilities. Join us for some casual conversation and to be connected.
