WE ARE SPECIAL NEEDS PARENTS
The vision of DadsMOVE is to provide every parent/caregiver (especially dads!) that we connect with, the tools, support, and training needed to be fully engaged in the recovery of their children.
DadsMOVE is a statewide organization, with many opportunities for men (and parents!) to become more involved in helping not only their own special needs children succeed and recover…
Your DadsMOVE Donation is Tax Deductible. Your donations go to funding our DadsMOVE institute, supporting awareness and breaking the stigmas of mental-health issues for families. Be a part of the solution!
We have workshops and IEP trainings for parents. See what our upcoming trainings. Our workshops are for parents, caregivers, and professionals, and is completely free.
Workshops and Training Weekends:
DadsMOVE offers parent workshops and weekend trainings to encourages support, community and foster knowledge. This is a large part of our organization, and we look forward to personally connecting and encouraging each other.
Are you the dad of a child with behavioral health concerns?
So are we, and have traveled a road similar to yours. As we have worked towards recovery with our own kids, we have learned a lot about systems navigation, IEPs, parenting techniques, de-escalation, reward systems, sibling issues, etc. and we simply want to pay it forward.
This weekend event is open to Dads grandparents, and other male caregivers, who have a special needs child in their family, or extended family.
There is a $40 registration fee for the weekend is, and includes lodging and meals from Friday evening to Sunday checkout (noon). We can also arrange carpools, or help with gas vouchers, bus/train tickets, etc. to help you get here.
All you need to bring is your bedding, pillow, and all your questions!
There will be a gift for every participant!
WHY CHOOSE US?
WHAT WE DO:
We Did It. So Can You
That is the premise of peer support, we aren’t clinicians or therapists. We are parents, and we are also Dads, so that makes us a little bit different than most other peer support groups and organizations you might be familiar with.
Individualized Education Plans
We never expected learning the ins-and-outs of IEPs, how to navigate the child serving systems of the state, a plethora of acronyms, or need a personal assistant to keep track of medications schedules and appointments.
Working Towards Recovery
As we have worked towards recovery with our own kids and families, we have had to learn a lot of things. Many times out of shear necessity.
