Families with a child with a disability often need specific information, including: details about the disability, school services, therapy, local policies, funding sources, transportation, medical facilities and much more. As parents, you know your children best, so look for a professional team that will truly listen to your interests and concerns. By developing a non-judgmental and nurturing team, you will receive the support to succeed under very difficult circumstances.
