Do You Wish You Had a Roadmap for Raising a Kid with Disabilities from Birth to Age 5? Check Out Our New Series!
Do you ever wish you had a roadmap of all the government benefits, specialists, and resources that are available for your child, if you only knew where to find them? Our new series, Mapping the Journey from Birth to Kindergarten, provides support and resources to families raising kids with disabilities under age 6 to help you learn the systems and build your care team.
The first event in our series took place on July 1 with celebreated marraige and family therapist Diane Simon Smith. We sat down virtually to talk about the unique challenges of being a parent to a child under age 6 with disabilities, and the importance of caring for ourselves. Watch the recording here!
