About us

Maureen Donegan, MSW and Michael Donegan, MSW, MA

At Yardley Associates, LLP, we understand the challenges that parents face during a time of significant family restructuring. By offering the Parent Education Program, we strive to provide a service that offers relevant information to help children through family change, all the while minimizing any additional stress on parents. Our hope is that our classes and website offer a broad range of practical information for you on your path forward.  


We are both graduate level social workers with over 50 years of combined experience working closely with children and their families in a variety of settings, including local community services, numerous school systems, residential/group home facilities, child/adolescent inpatient mental health services and outpatient counseling resources. Having personally facilitated the Parent Education Program together for over twenty-five years, we provide exceptional educational services using a dynamic, multimedia approach.


What We Do


Our curriculum is continually evolving to include current information and up-to-date research in the field.  Most importantly, our curriculum is vastly enriched by the many experiences and stories shared by parents in our classes over the last twenty-five years. 

Warm Line

Participants are encouraged to use Yardley Associates, LLP as a resource whenever needed. Parents can call with questions, inquire about clarifications and/or request information about referral services. Parents are also welcome to attend (at no charge) another class cycle at any time for a “refresher.”


Working for so many years in the Greater Hartford area, we are aware of a strong network of resources. We  offer information on how to access significant support services in the area, including ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) services.
