Thanks to a grant from the State Department of Developmental Services (DDS), new SEARCH programs aim to reach both English and Spanish-speaking Hispanic families of children aged 3-21, specifically in the Desert and Coachella Valley areas of the Inland Empire. We will do this by increasing the number of families who receive support, education, and advocacy-related services during key transitional periods (e.g, transitioning from receiving an initial diagnosis to receiving services, transitioning to K-to-12 schooling, and transitioning out of high school). The proposed project will support families at all stages of these transitions by providing a suite of online resources (e.g. podcasts, webinars) and personalized supports (e.g. a “helpline” where families can reach us in real-time). SEARCH is working collaboratively with Inland Regional Center (IRC) to implement this project.
