Remember how helpless you felt? Pass along your hard-earned insights….


When suddenly faced with your child’s emotional, developmental, learning or health problem, where did you turn to find treatment that worked?

Please share your hard-earned insight with another local parent by adding to our list of reviews on The Parent List. It takes less than 5 minutes and is anonymous. Click HERE

The Parent List contains first-hand insights from district 86, 181 and 63 parents about providers that helped address their child’s anxiety, depression, school avoidance, eating disorders, insomnia, peer relations, grief, stress, ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum, and more.

Doctors, therapists, support groups, in- and out-patient programs, nutritionists, books, and holistic medical approaches may all be reviewed on The Parent List.
