A Letter to Parents from Parents

This letter is to parents from parents. We have gone through a similar experience as the one you are entering with your child. We want to provide you with help, hope, encouragement and information.

Wherever you are in this process, whether you are waiting for a placement or if your child has already been admitted to a program, we want you to know you are doing a hard job. Parenting children with emotional/ behavioral needs is full of challenges. Please take a few moments to read this letter.
