Military Family Resources

Support for families

Did you Know?

Support for military families with special needs family members is provided through the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

Although each Service has its own EFMP, they all serve the same essential function: coordinating the assignment process to ensure special needs families are not sent to locations that lack adequate medical or educational resources. 

Installation EFMP programs offer support programs and provide families with information about and referral to local services. 

Enrollment in the EFMP is mandatory for active duty service members who have dependent family members with ongoing medical, mental health, or special educational needs. 

The Special Needs Parent ToolKit 

A comprehensive guide for parents on navigating medical and special education services, community support and benefits and entitlements.

Educational Directory for Children with Special Needs

The directory consists of two components:

  • The School Age Directory focuses on education services for children with special needs, 3 through 21 years old.  You can download it here.
