About the Family Support Network

The Family Support Network (FSN) at Texas A&M University is a resource center for families in the Brazos Valley who have children with disabilities and who come together to learn about disability issues and share information. Our goal is to help you obtain the information, support, and skills needed to make informed decisions about your lives and those of your children.



Founded in 2002, the FSN is a project of the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University and was a formalization of the local Parents of Children with Disabilities group, a grassroots organization of parents that had been holding meetings since 1999 to strengthen knowledge and communication among parents in the area.


What We Do

We facilitate families, educators, and service professionals as they seek the information, support and skills needed to make informed decisions, especially those dealing with special education for their kids. Each FSN member can sign up to receive the monthly Center on Disability and Development newsletter packed with a calendar of community events, articles and announcements.


Guided by the input of a collaborative team consisting of family members, educators and professionals, the FSN connects families and providers to area agencies and services, as well as to resources on specific topics of interest.


Camp LIFE (Leadership, Independence, and Friends through Experiences), is a project of the FSN and is held twice yearly. Find more information about Camp LIFE here.
