Family Road Map

Break through the confusion of finding special needs services.

We know what it’s like to feel so overwhelmed, you don’t know where to begin. A parent on our staff calls it “The Parking Lot Moment.” You walk outside after an appointment, sit down, and think, “What do I do NOW?” or “Where do I even start?”  Family Road Map enables people to steer out of that Parking Lot Moment. We aim to make the lives of families (and those who serve families) easier by providing a step-by-step process for breaking down problems into manageable parts and finding the supports and services to meet unique needs.   


The Family Road Map Guide and curriculum contain family-tested tips and strategies built around the five points of the Guiding Star – five navigation skills that work for EVERY system. Programs change, People in agencies change, procedures change–but the Guiding Star, like the North Star, doesn’t change. It keeps a family on track regardless of what services they need.

We train Facilitators and Coaches to bring Family Road Map to communities from Maine to Guam. Click here to learn more about how we train providers to empower families to navigate systems to get the services and supports they need to meet their unique needs.
