Katie and Jack

Katie remembers learning about Raising Special Kids when her son Jack was 2 years old from his DDD (Division of Developmental Disabilities) Support Coordinator.

Then she realized she had been acquainted with Raising Special Kids previously in her career as a special education teacher, "but I didn't think to use those services for myself until I heard that recommendation."

Katie was connected with a family of a child similar to Jack, and she found that sharing experiences, emotions and knowledge was invaluable. "It was so good to talk to other parents who understood what I was going through," she explained. "If you are new to either a diagnosis or the experience of having a child with special needs, I think it is key to be able to talk to other parents in the same situation. There are so many different emotions that you just wouldn't share with anyone else."
