what that means for their child. The expectation will be that
HOPE can provide the funding for these parents to get a better
understanding of the disability and be able to ask professional’s
questions that are unclear or that they have previously been
too scared to ask.
Conferences provide information on the newest technology, support
devices, equipments and a support system. Parents will come
in contact with leaders in the disability community and have
a chance to tell their story and get tips to support their individual
better. Conferences also give parents some time together to
focus on each other while becoming well informed parents.
stay with-in city. Money situations are really tight for many
families who have children with disabilities. Parents need a
chance to engage in romantic settings to relieve stress and
to focus on each other while their individual is being supported.
This stay with-in the city will allow the parents to be away
from home but not have the anxiety of being out of reach if
their child was to need them.
