Parents’ Resources

When it comes to special needs, word-of-mouth is often the best way to learn about new programs, tutors, caregivers, camps, etc. Members of Summit’s staff and our Parents’ Association have compiled a list of resources that may be of interest to you. These organizations are not affiliated with nor endorsed by The Summit School. If you have any questions about these resources or more, please call your child’s clinician.

Click on each item listed for more information.

If you have other resources you believe would be valuable to our community, please email us at pa@summitqueens.com
