UCP’s team members offer families support in being an advocate for their children. Navigating the many paths on which to travel with a special needs child can be overwhelming, and our team is dedicated to helping parents find their way. At each of our campuses, we have a Family Services Case Manager who is available to help find resources and guide families through the process.
Whether it’s talking with mom and dad, grandma and grandpa, or sister and brother, we offer families compassion and understanding. From individual sessions to group meetings for couples or families, our counselor talk with clients in various settings, helping them ease stress in a positive manner.
When it comes to raising a child, parents don’t always know what to do or how to do it effectively. Throughout the year, UCP offers free, educational support meetings and training sessions to eliminate some of these frustrations. Topics include, but are not limited to, behavior training, potty training, encouraging language, and choosing age appropriate toys for your child. Please check with our campuses regarding upcoming events and training sessions.
Families often find there are a limited number of places where they have the opportunity to meet and interact with others whose experiences are similar to theirs. Several times throughout the year, our campuses host family fun nights and other events for its students and families. These events are a great way to meet and mingle with other families at UCP and in our community. Family Fun Nights are open to everyone and often include light food, games and activities for the children. (i.e. shows, reading, music, etc.). Please check with your campus for upcoming family fun nights and festivals.
