Review for Raising Special Kids, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

Role:  Volunteer & Resident Physician Training by meeting in our home and sharing experiences as a family living with a child who has autism.
