How Can We Help?

This is the question we have asked thousands of parents this year alone. Parents in need of support and advice on special education rights and laws for their children. They may feel lost, angry or confused, but we are here to help.

For families of children with special needs, their story radically shifts when they first receive a diagnosis for their child. The following years are shaped by finding correct services and ensuring their child maintains needed services throughout their lives. Pathfinder Services of ND exists to walk alongside families and guide them on how to find the help and answers they need to thrive.

The thing we hear the most? “I wish I would have known about you sooner! Your services have made a huge difference for our child and our family”, but we can’t reach all those families without you.

With your help, we have established essential parent and family connections delivering direct support services. Our Parent Training and Information Center offers one-on-one advising and supports to parents, youth and professionals. Our EPP parents are paired with peers who have experienced the Early Intervention process and are offered emotional and professional support.

This year alone, you have helped us to reach more than 27,972 parents and professionals with resources on special education information, processes and services, and have allowed for over 126,885 parents and professionals to access our online resources. Your funding has also allowed us to deliver over 263 hours of training opportunities through webinar and face-to-face events throughout the state of North Dakota. In order to continue to do this, WE NEED YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

What Parents & Professionals Say About Pathfinder


"I can’t thank you enough for the work you do to help people with disabilities and to build much-needed community and support. The resources I found here are fantastic. As a librarian, I’ve staked my career in helping empower people with stories and knowledge, and I’m grateful to find others who share that vision."
"What a great resource Pathfinder is I am so grateful that you called us."
"I need some time away from my kids so I can grow into being able to support their needs."
"I feel that it is important for me to be more of a parent than a teacher; sometimes I get lost as a teacher and forget the roles of parents."
"The fact that you welcomed us in on a stipend, don’t know how we could have made it without your support. The networking was outstanding. I learned so much to take back and share with others."
