What Parents and Education Professionals Say About PEP
“After coming, I understand the importance for parents to come together because they are so busy ‘just handling’ things. They need to regroup and get on the same page. This has started a movement in us to better our relationship like nothing ever has. Thank-you.”
“I learned a lot of great information. I feel relieved and empowered and know I am not alone.”
“I was able to take my professional hat off and listen to what parents with a child with a disability go through from the day they learn about the disability.”
