Profile Information

My role:
Parent, Advocate
My Age Range:
36-45
My child's age range:
High School
About Myself:
I am a parent of a beautiful 15 year old girl who had 9 1/2 years of seizures. Due to this she has had many medical and learning difficulties. She is now seizure free and we are wading through school and pondering the transition to adulthood. We moved from out of state 4 years ago and I had difficulty finding information, so I started a support group called Our Special Kids Southeast Iowa to bring parents, families and information and resources together.
Disability Interests:
Learning Disability, Mental Retardation, Seizure Disorder/Epilepsy

The vision for the Friends Club will be for youth to be able to find a friend. Our hopes will be that various youth activities throughout the state will be listed on our calendar. For example if several kids go bowling on saturday afternoon (not sponsered by any agency or organization) we can list it to welcome others in that area to join.
