Newborn & New Diagnosis Visits
Did you or someone you know recently find out your child has special needs? We would love to meet with you! Our trained parent volunteers and staff are excited to welcome new families into our community. We understand that this time is overwhelming and challenging; we are here to listen, answer your questions, share resources and introduce you to our community of supporting and loving families.
United Angels Foundation frequently holds educational seminars carefully designed to address concerns and needs facing parents of special needs children in our community. Topics may include DSPD, behavior, sleep training, IEPs and public education, advocacy, estate planning, potty training and more. Our classes are selected and revised based on parent requests.

Our Parent Transition Specialist can help you navigate and apply for services such as SSI, DSPD, Medicaid, Guardianship, Financial Planning, Voc-Rehab, and more! Private consultations are free for UAF members. You may request a consultation at any time; however, we recommend a total of three consultations at ages 14, 17/18 and 21+.
