Project Description

The overall goal of the project is to create awareness of opportunities for Hispanic families with children with special needs who live in extreme South Texas so their children can develop life skills to become more independent. This project will inform parents about how to recognize developmental milestones and potential developmental delays. The project will also provide support to families to increase the knowledge, resources and skills needed to raise children with developmental disabilities. Parents will be included in leadership roles by serving as volunteer advisors, speakers and community liaisons. These parents will provide input to project staff as they partner with other groups, community centers, city government, schools and hospitals. The project will create various communication materials regarding developmental steps including brochures, flyers, newsletters and bulletins promoting awareness.
