Parent to Parent USA has been a partner with the National Resource Center on Supported Decision-Making (NRC-SDM) to promote Supported Decision-Making and Alternatives to Guardianship. With other parent organizations, we brought a parent voice to the project. We have compiled a listing of resources that may be of assistance to families and individuals with disabilities.

Parent to Parent USA has worked with the Primary Care Collaborative (PCC) to help address and improve patient and family engagement in clinical practices and to engage more practices in referring to parent to parent programs.
