Family Chats

Family Chat Videos

Given the challenges families face in getting information and support with PBS (especially during this trying time), HCPBS is planning to host regular “family chats”, focusing on topics such as resolving specific concerns or improving daily routines. They will be in collaboration with Parenting Special Needs Magazine and will be offered online and live streamed. This will offer families an opportunity to receive information from nationally recognized experts for free.
If your organization is interested in cosponsoring (with us acknowledging you in our materials and during chats), please contact Kimberli Breen at
