Twila's Story

Stories May 27th, 2013

After learning of her youngest child’s diagnosis, Twila set out to learn all she could aboutTwilasDaughterFlower-WEB202 Cerebral Palsy and what she could do to help her daughter. Living in a remote area in the Hopi Tribal community made accessing some resources challenging, but Twila discovered Raising Special Kids while taking a class on advocacy for families.

"We have used many of the services to help us with our daughter: special education consultation, advocacy training, and guidance in locating resources, which can be difficult to find in rural areas like ours," said Twila. "When we received a diagnosis, all our expectations for the future were turned upside down. But learning more about our daughters' disability has been so helpful for our family.”
