    • Seek ways to encourage and strengthen communication between parents and school personnel.
    • Refer families to local support groups, workshops, and advocacy groups.
    • Provide an opportunity for families to network and share ideas and experiences.
    • Link experienced parents to parents of newly identified children with similar special needs.
