Coming January 2022 … Help for Parents of Children with Disabilities!

Introducing The Water Prairie Chronicles!

Parenting our children, who each had different challenges to face, was confusing at times. Parenting a child with a disability can be overwhelming! We felt we had to find our own way even though there were great resources available. We were able to connect with a variety of individuals and organizations along the way who helped point us in the right direction, but it took a lot of time and energy to find the information we were looking for.             

How We Can Help With Parenting a Child with a Disability:

  • We want to create a resource database of information to educate, support and encourage individuals living with a disability as well as their families, friends, and other supporters.
  • We recognize it is important for individuals to find friends they can connect with who understand some of the challenges they run into. Sign up for our monthly newsletter to stay updated on upcoming events.
  • We want this resource database to be available to anyone who may need it and want to feature the resources in a way that those needing to connect with them can do so in a personal manner.
  • Offering interviews through a podcast, website, and video format is a way to introduce these resources to anyone who may benefit from their expertise no matter where they may live.

We welcome conversations with both those needing to connect with a specific resource and an organization or business wanting to be featured by us. Sign up for our monthly newsletter to stay up to date on upcoming topics and events, and join our Facebook group to get connected

Let’s open the doors to a world where uniqueness is celebrated and everyone is welcome!
