United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Central Florida, Inc.
June 29, 2011
The hard work and dedication provided by UCP staff on behalf of the children of Central Florida is second to none! The way in which the staff approaches each individual child’s needs allows the child to develop at their own pace while remaining with their peers. The staff includes the families in every aspect of learning. As a board member, I have been so impressed at the way UCP handles “inclusion”. Children are learning at an early age that “everyone matters” and that everyone should be afforded the opportunity to live productive lives and be a valued part of society. I am proud to be a member of this board!

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would not make changes to the work being done at the centers, however I would provide more funding so they could reach more children!
Board Member & I am a board member.
