“I am the mother of twins. At birth I learned my daughter had a disability, but I didn’t learn of my son’s disability until he entered school. Helping each get the resources they needed and access to opportunities helped me learn to become an effective advocate and understand the important role communities play in supporting individuals with developmental and intellectual challenges. Now they are adults, but the challenges continue and the networks of support are as important as ever!”
