A site for parents of young children with special needs.
Forming critical early goals in the family, school, and community will build a child's best life.
Hello! I'm Cori. I'm the mother of three school-aged boys who love getting dirty outside, Star Wars, the Chicago Cubs. They also all live with various disabilities.
As a mother who has walked the stressful, lonely, and confusing walk of a parent of a child living with a disability, I am passionate about sharing what I've learned along the way with other parents just starting their journey. My passion has spread to advocacy work, and I now participate in several local, state, and national leadership and advocacy boards, programs, and cohorts. This website was created as my graduation project for the 2018 Illinois Partners in Policymaking program.
I'm still learning, but if you have any questions about the content of this site, need help finding additional resources or supports, or simply need some encouragement, please feel free to contact me using the form below.
