I refer families to Raising Special kids in Phoenix no less than weekly in my role with The Division of Developmental Disabilties. They have exellent information for families and individuals looking for information and support. They provide not only exellent education but compassion and support for families who are looking for resouces to support their family members.
I know that the people I refer will be treated with respect and compassion. I would rate them higher if I could. Respectfully,
Brenda E. Sondersted

It has been my privilege to see the work that Raising Special Kids has done by helping families walk through this journey with a special needs child. Families often come to this time completely in shock and fear and unaware of any resources that are available. The incredible people at RSK are not just there to tell them what to do, but guide them and nurture them through this valley. Wonderful people performing a wonderful service.

I'm a former board member and also a parent who has relied on RSK for valuable insight and support in the many years since my son's diagnosis with autism. The staff is responsive and professional and has provided me with invaluable guidance on issues relating to my son's treatment and education.

Raising Special Kids puts a personal face on families that have children with disabilities. I often host medical residents in my home and share the story of how we received Josie's diagnosis. It allows me the opportunity to educate new doctors on Cerebral Palsy and the effect that diagnosis has on us as a family. On a very personal level I hope that new docotrs undertand that their choice of words echo foreaver in our mind. That information empowers us as parents and that Raising Special Kids as an organization is family friendly and provides accurate, up to date information on disabilities and a network that guides us through the maze of this new challenge.

Raising Special Kids has assisted me in obtaining accurate and up to date information on Cerebral Palsy. I have also sought them out in matters concerning my daughters IEP.

Expand the Resident Hosting Program to include dentists and teachers. I would like to see the newsletter Connecting by Raising Special Kids available in doctors offices and hospital waiting rooms.

It is an absolute pleasure to host resident doctors in my home, share our story about our disabled daughter, and further educate them on the necessity of organizations such as Raising Special Kids. It is a relief to these residents to know that there is a capable organization with an abundance of resources to where they can refer their patients and families.

Raising Special Kids has been an encouragement to my family through some really difficult times. They were available for direction and helped us network with other families. Their events have been very well planned and well received. I especially enjoyed the Resilient Relationships workshop. They are a great resource for families who "Raising Special Kids."

Raising Special Kids was there for me from the earliest months when we had yet to get the (eventual) diagnosis of autism for our daughter. We have participated in the residency training program for several years. What a great feeling of giving back it is to help our medical providers have a more realistic ... hopefully more empathetic and knowledgable ... view of what it's like to be a family living with a child who has a disability. Sharing, one on one, some of the very personal challenges (many uncomfortable, emotional, and not easily shared) can be a powerful experience for both parties. A wonderful organization!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was, as a young mother, matched with another mom who was also experiencing coming to terms with having a child with a significant disability. That early networking ... the beginning of the discovery that I did not have to travel this difficult journey completely alone ... meant everything to me. My family is intact in no small measure due to the support I have found in other families and Raising Special Kids was the starting point for me.

I found out about RSK when my young son was diagnosed and they helped me in several ways. I have been a volunteer now for several years and it gives me great joy to work with such a professional, knowledgeable group. They do great things for individuals, families, and the community.

Raising Special Kids has helped so many Doctors in Training better understand how to dialog with our special needs families. This resident training gives a wider base of knowledge for our doctors and thus better service for our special needs patients.
