Skills to Succeed Parent Survey
Hello! We would love your assistance in getting this survey out to parents of children under the age of 12 who have been diagnosed with Autism, PDD-NOS, ADD, ADHD, high anxiety disorder, etc. in the Kansas City area.
Skills to Succeed is committed to helping families be successful, and in talking with parents, it is clear that resources that provide support to children with clinical and developmental needs in the evening are scarce. Finding experienced and enthusiastic people who you can trust to care for your child can be a challenge, but it’s important for all parents to take time for themselves when they can know that their kids are safe, having fun, and learning. Please take a few moments to answer this short survey so that we can best assess your needs in the design of our program.
If you have any questions about our services or would like additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me or check out our website: www.theskillstosucceed.org
Thanks so much!

Kansas Commission on Disability Concerns (KCDC) Website
Below is a link to the Kansas Commission on Disability Concerns (KCDC) website. It provides disability-related information to the people of Kansas. Many of the key resources people access are listed on this site, such as Disability Service Maps, Resources, ADA Information, Legislative Information and more.
In addition, it offers a wealth of information on topics to assist people with disabilities in living as equal citizens in our state’s communities. These include work, school, daily living, play, youth and disability history.
This is a wealth of resources! http://www.kcdcinfo.com/
I love working with everyone at Helpers, Inc., and I have recommended it to many parents. You certainly have made my life easier and Kirk's happier.
