Toronto Parent Events

parent help in the greater Toronto area

If you live in Toronto or the GTA, and have a special needs child, then you may be surprised to know how many services are out there to support you.

The problem has been finding them. There are a number of organizations all over the city that support people with disabilities. But, each organization lists it own information in their own way. And if you don't know where to look, you'll never know about it.

We're aiming to pull local disability support information all together for you so that you know what's available - for free! Just click on any item for more details.

Remember, parents of children with special needs also benefit from most programs that are available for all parents. The only trick for many events is whether the child care is accessible and / or can accommodate the needs of the children with disabilities. And, if we're doing things right, that should always be true, right?

Most parenting TOPICS are usually applicable for all parents - so go ahead and add an event if you think that our community of special families will benefit.

You can add events too, not only for your own organization, but for any event that you know about. Just fill in the form below!

Know of an event for parents in the greater Toronto area?

Share it! Any event aimed at parents of children with special needs that takes place anywhere in the GTA is welcome.
