 About Us 

Parent Engagement

Weekly support groups for families in each of the core programs, online support groups, and regular social events bringing parents from all programs together to create an inclusive and intersectional community.

Student Advocacy

NASD provides professional student advocacy services, as well as advocacy training classes that empower families to advocate for their own children. Parents and community members also have an opportunity to attend advanced student advocacy trainings  with the goal of creating a team of mentors and professional advocates to provide student support services in Nevada.

Community Education

Diversity and inclusion training for schools and community organizations that serve youth. Workshops with diverse community leaders about real-world issues impacting our students and families. Parenting/life skills classes including child development, co-parenting, disability-related parenting, and home-based education. 

Director's Notes 


As parents, we want to do the best we can for our kids, but many of us face challenges parenting our children and find ourselves without the tools and experience to address their needs. Often, we focus all our energy on our children’s needs, and neglect our need for self-care, peer support, and community. NASD was founded by parent advocates with a strong history of impacting education policy and advocating for youth and families. We endeavor to support and empower diverse families with resources, support, mentorship, and advocacy services. We also support schools and youth-serving organizations through diversity and inclusion training, professional development and policy development.
