We Had a Diagnosis but Nowhere to Go

After Louise and her husband received a diagnosis for their son, Robert, she felt unsure about what to do next. "We had a diagnosis but nowhere to go," she explained. Then a speech therapist recommended she go to the Collaborative Therapies Conference that Raising Special Kids was presenting at Phoenix Children's Hospital.

Louise, still feeling overwhelmed by the news of the diagnosis, decided to attend. Talking with one of the staff between presentations led to further meetings to obtain assistance with her son's IEP, a parent mentoring connection, information about Individual Family Service Plans, and other resources.

Robert has made significant progress, but Louise knows there is still work to be done. She likes the reassurance she finds in connecting with her parent mentor. "She is my sounding board whenever I'm thinking of trying something new or looking for guidance."
