Parenting a child with a disability is an unexpected journey
Parents are amazing
When your kid has a disability, it’s harder to hold down a job and it’s easy to be isolated. That’s why parents of kids with disabilities are 3x as likely to experience depression. The right support makes all the difference.
All kids can flourish
There are 1.5 million people and 53 languages in Alameda county. An overly complicated system of services means that 4 out of 5 kids with disabilities aren’t getting the care they need.
Disability is common
One in 6 kids has one or more disabilities. Some are diagnosed before being born and others years later. Parenting a kid with disabilities means learning to face new challenges with joy.
