Through its parent-to-parent network, the Baltimore Jewish Abilities Alliance (BJAA) provides you with an invaluable resource of someone who has navigated the same system and challenges. Your parent partner can offer advice and assistance and also serve as a sounding board for your concerns and frustrations. In addition, BJAA’s workshops and support programs present you with information in a non-threatening environment.
