Parent Support E-mail

For nearly five years, we've been compiling and distributing a list of Parent Education and Support opportunities to families and those who support families on or near Cape Cod and the Islands.  Today, we also distribute monthly information to Cape & Islands fathers and occassional information to Parenting Grandparents and Single Parents in our area of service. If you'd like to join any of these distribution lists (no spam, ever! I promise), then click on the appropriate link:

Demystifying Early Intervention

The Oct./Nov. edition of Parent Perspective (the Early Intervention (EI) Parent Leadership Project's newsletter) features our own Paul Melville, detailing his daughter's involvement with Early Intervention. His hope is that this will help demystify this wonderful program for other families who might benefit.

PARENT EDUCATION AND SUPPORT CALENDAR

As the saying goes, unfortunately kids don’t come with their own instruction manuals; however, there are tips and techniques that can make parenting easier and living with children better for everyone in the household! Our list of Parent Education and Support opportunities is available on our website and it can be e-mailed to you every month. Contact Paul Melville for more info: paul@capecoalition.com.

A NOTE ABOUT PARENT EDUCATION AND SUPPORT

If you would ever like to learn more about parent education and support, or just would like to share your opinions or ideas – such as what’s needed, what works well, or what doesn’t really seem to fit for Cape parents today - that’s one of the reasons we’re here, so please contact CCNSC at 508-771-4336. Thank you!

CCNSC FAMILY SUPPORT INFORMATION LINE
508-771-4336 - Not just for parents!

A free, confidential information and referral service for all families on the Cape and Islands. By calling our toll-free line, families -- or professionals and volunteers who work with families - can learn about a variety of resources such as emergency financial assistance, fuel assistance, parent education and support, mental health professionals, transportation options, and programs and activities for children of all ages. When appropriate, we can also handle some of the time-consuming and often difficult “legwork” involved with connecting a family with the resources that best fit that family’s particular situation.
