    The Family Support Network (FSN) was created to meet the needs of Maryland families with children, birth to 3, who have been identified as havening developmental delays or disabilities by:  (a) providing information to families regarding community services; (b) referring families to local support groups, workshops, and advocacy groups; (c) providing opportunities for families to network and share ideas and experiences; and (d) helping to link “experienced” parents with parents of newly identified children with similar needs.

    Preschool Partners provide ongoing support to families of children ages 3 through 5, maintaining the connection with the local Infants & Toddlers Program, as well as, fostering new connections among families, preschool programs, and community services.
