Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace!

June 30 is the deadline to tell Palm Beach County about your experiences as a parent or caregiver of a child with special needs or disability. The County is listening and we want to ensure that your needs are being met.

Here is what some other parents had to say:

“We strongly feel that many years were wasted being new parents and very unsure of how to (a) process that our son has autism and (b) navigate the system. Palm Beach County needs a system where families are brought in from day 1 and truly guided throughout the process not just given list of contacts.”

“We need a center with job skills training, social skills training, daily life skills training, community based employment instructions, training and support to integrate into the community, work readiness, and life enrichment  such as decision making, self-improvement, task completion, and community involvement.”

“My family's income falls where we make too much for Medicaid, but we still can't afford to pay for all of the services our daughter needs.”

“When I die is there some place he can live safely?”
