Parents of Children

Parents who come to AANE often wonder where to invest their time, money, and energy in order to help their child and family thrive. They may feel confused by the array of interventions being recommended. They may feel guilty that they haven’t “done enough,” or feel judged by other parents or family members who claim to have all the answers. They may feel under pressure to have their child catch up to peers. And almost every parent wonders, “Will my child be okay?”

But you don’t have to panic. There is no single way to help your child or family thrive; AANE is here to help you find the path that is right for you. At AANE you have access to the collective wisdom of our parent-professional staff and extended parent community help guide you on your parenting journey. You are not alone!
