The Association for Special Children and Families (ASCF) is a community-based organization for families of children with disabilities. It has been operating since 1978. ASCF serves as the Highlands Parent Center, the first and only community parent resource center in New Jersey. Highlands supports families of babies, children and youth with the full range of disabilities living in the Northwest NJ area.


ASCF has wonderful publications in the area of education, behavior and mental health to help families cope with the pandemic. Check these publications here.
