Family Networking

Barrington Area Special Voices is a network of families providing a place to share experiences and information to empower parents, caregivers and children.


Social Opportunities

We host a multitude of social opportunities for children, young adults and parents. These include monthly open gyms, parent drop-off events, holiday gatherings at Christmas and Halloween and unique opportunities like therapeutic riding, hayrides and more throughout the year. 


Support & Advocacy

BASV strives to support our members by sharing resources to help parents advocate for their  child and also through sponsorship of our local Special Olympics team and financial scholarship for graduating seniors.

Diversity is not about how we differ. Diversity is about embracing one another’s uniqueness.
