The Greater Atlanta Jewish Abilities Alliance offers two email listservs to connect with other people and families in a similar position for resources, advice and recommendations.

For Children
JAA Parent Listserv (formerly the Amit Parent Listserv) is a great way to connect with other parents of children with disabilities who have navigated the same system and challenges. It also is a great venue for finding resources and recommendations in a non-threatening environment.

For Adults
Sometimes the best way to handle your feelings is to communicate with other people in your position. You may want to consider joining the JAA Adult Listserv. This forum is for adults with disabilities and their family members.

To join the JAA Parent Listserv or the JAA Adult Listserv, please send an email to and specify which list you would like to join.
