South Dakota Parent Connection is connecting families who care for individuals birth to 26 with disabilities or special health care needs to information, training, and resources in an environment of support, hope, and respect. Because many of the staff at South Dakota Parent Connection are parents of children with special needs, they are able to provide first-hand knowledge to the families they assist. All of the services provided to families are at no cost.

South Dakota Parent Connection also helps provide impartial guidance, information, and resources to families and the school professionals helping to support them through their learning journey with our Navigator program.

Most importantly, families and professionals receive vital, personal, and timely support each time they call, email, or visit in person with staff in Aberdeen, Rapid City, and Sioux Falls.
