BENEFITING: Everything Special Needs
Jennifer Kirrane wrote -The goal of Everything Special Needs/ Walk for Everybody is to help families of special needs children find the necessary & often vital services and programs that are available in New York State. This process can be very difficult & frustrating for parents & quite often they give up & don't know where to go, or who to talk to. Everything Special Needs has been developed to respond to this information need of parents — those who have just learned their child has special needs and those who have lived with this reality for some time but who have reached a transition point where they need new information or renewed support. This organization provides a starting point for families in their search for information and resources. We also hope that it will also be useful to professionals who work with families who have a child with special needs.
