Support for Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, and other Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities

Are you a parent of a child with autism or another intellectual or developmental disability? Do you know what resources are in your community and available to help support your child?

In today’s episode, Tonya is speaking with Jennifer Pfaltzgraff, the executive director of the Arc of the Triangle in Raleigh, NC about the types of services they offer individuals with autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, and other intellectual and developmental disabilities. Jennifer’s son has cerebral palsy, and she talks about some of her experiences as a parent of a child with cerebral palsy and how that led her to become involved with her local Arc chapter.
