Strengthening Communities One Family at a Time

The Nevada Parent Network (NPN) is a program of the Nevada University Affiliated Program in Developmental Disabilities, but it is staffed and governed by parents for parents. The NPN is a resource for parents of children with disabilities who seek to better serve children with special needs. NPN provides parent-to-parent linking as well as information dissemination.

There are no fees or costs to families participating in NPN services or activities. The Nevada Parent Network services and activities include:

  • Parent-to-parent linking
  • Information dissemination
  • Presentations
  • Developing local support groups
  • Linking local support groups
  • Leadership development

The Nevada Parent Network is now comprised of over 450 families around the state. A new Website has been established for the project and a monthly newsletter is sent to all Network families. Parent- to -parent matches, Internet searches, outreach training, presentations, technical assistance, and leadership development continue to be important components of the project.
