Finding the information you need to raise a child who has a disability is not always easy. We know there are other community-based organizations and programs with information in addition to what we can provide. Providence has partnerships with many of these and we encourage you to visit their websites and contact them for additional help.
Pathways to Success are information sheets developed by Providence, with helpful strategies for parents and caregivers of young children. The Pathways to Success program is generously supported by our friends at TELUS:
