We are an all volunteer organisation. We share information (that no-one else seems to tell you!) with families who have a child with a disability or special needs.

We visit schools and support groups in South Australia and meet with parents and carers, and can also provide a speaker for your event. If you would like us to visit your child’s school, please click here to learn more, or here to print our booking form, or to download or print a copy of our FAQ .
What families say about Parents Helping Parents info sessions:
“Lots more services available than I was aware of” (Primary School)
“It was awesome and informative – Thank you!” (Carer Support)
“They have personally motivated me to be a stronger advocate for my son and have assisted to build resilience in me in order for this to happen.” (Conductive Education Centre)
“Informative, empowering and encouraging” (Primary School)
“…inspirational and gave me more information in two hours than I have ever had. My son with a disability is ten years old and you have given me so many avenues to get help from.“ (Carer Support)
What service providers say:
“Their work and information had significant weight, integrity and impact because as parents of children with a disability, they are ‘walking in the same shoes’ as those who make up their audience or in their own words, they have “been there and done that”” Carer Support
“Their extensive knowledge in regards to resources available, medical issues and organizations that can provide assistance is impressive.” Coromandel Valley Primary School
“They provide a much needed service in the disability community, and their personal examples allow families to really connect with the information and take it in.” Take Heart Autism Support Group
“Some of our children have now been able to access free occupational therapy, and one family was able to arrange respite services for the first time after encouragement and resources shared by the group.” Clovelly Park Primary School
“The presenters were very professional and respectful and their knowledge of the many services that the MyTime parents didn’t know of was invaluable… Our parents have been sharing and singing the praises of Parents Helping Parents via social media in support groups” MyTime Facilitator/Manager
