I plan on making this page all about resources you can access for information on different topics.

  • Single Parenting
  • Special Education, Rule 51
  • Advocating
  • Epilepsy
  • ADHD
  • IEP’s (Individual Education Plans)
  • Giggles (we all have days we just need a laugh!)
  • The Forgotten Ones (support for siblings of special needs)
  • Activities (Family activities, groups, meetings, etc)

I’m still working on this, one step at a time. So for now we’ll say it’s under construction ūüôā
