Because of you, CPARC is able to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
Let me tell you about Sydney. A spunky, social butterfly who loves Harry Styles, she is an artist, athlete, and musician. Sydney is a young woman with an intellectual disability.
“Life with Sydney is like running a race with hurdles. You get over one hurdle, only to see another one coming,” mom, Tracy, says.“But you get over it. Go to the next one. You get through it.”
Sydney’s family contacted CPARC because they needed help. Sydney was about to enter her final year of high school. Special education planning discussions with the school weren’t going well. Tracy requested the help of an advocate. After many discussions, Sydney created a customized schedule with activities in and outside the classroom.
“It was really great to have CPARC with us,” Tracy says. “Our advocate helped the school and our family come to an understanding.”
Sydney’s smile says it all.
Another CPARC success, Thanks to You!
