At Family Connection, we offer a variety of resources to address your questions and concerns on the complex healthcare, mental health, and educational systems you must navigate.
The Family Resource Portal is a statewide directory of resource to connect families, providers, and others professionals with service and information, in accordance with Part C Regulations of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The directory includes links to South Carolina organizations and projects in early intervention, parenting, developmental delays, special needs and related topics, as well as a listing of early intervention research projects. If you are a provider, you can submit or update a listing.
Our Family Connection staff have worked hard to develop many different materials for families and professionals in a variety of different topics at no cost.
These materials can be downloaded as a PDF straight to your device or mailed to your address.
