The Collaborative Resource Network is a group located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area comprised of mental health, education, medical, development, and other related professionals who work with children, adolescents, and young adults. The group was originally created in December of 2012 in an effort to provide professionals in different fields with opportunities to meet and collaborate with others in related fields who work with children, adolescents, and young adults. In addition, there are a variety of services available to assist children, adolescents, and young adults, that many professionals may not even be aware of or know much about. The Collaborative Resource Network serves as an opportunity for a group of professionals to meet monthly, learn about related fields/resources available to assist the individuals with whom they work, and provides opportunities for collaboration across disciplines. The group has grown considerably and currently has 16 active members, which include psychologists, speech and language therapists, academic coaches, tutors (academic subject areas & SAT/ACT prep), educational attorneys, college planners, educational consultants, educational advocates, psychiatrists, audiologists, and occupational therapists.
We know that it is not always easy to find resources to assist children, teens, and young adults. Therefore, we have created this website as a means to disseminate information to the general public about different resources available to assist children, teens, and young adults struggling with a wide variety of issues. Please feel free to contact any of us if your child, teen, or young adult is struggling. We're happy to assist and provide a direct service if appropriate, or help you locate the right service/provider as needed. Additionally, please take a look at the resources and blogs/articles sections for additional support.
