Texas Children’s Health Plan understands that being a caregiver for a special needs child is a heavy responsibility, one that is taxing both physically and emotionally. Parent training classes can be critical in helping a caregiver understand the needs of their child as well as provide a valuable support system. Texas Children’s Health Plan educators will offer parent training classes on a variety of topics relevant to STAR Kids members and their parents. Topics may include navigating special education opportunities and services and advocating for children with development or intellectual disabilities.
