From Miami to New Jersey: A Parent’s Journey

We are pleased to share with you this blog post written by CPIR's own Myriam Alizo. She describes her personal journey as a parent learning that her four-year-old daughter had speech delays and attention issues. What to do? Like so many other parents, Myriam knew nothing about early childhood delays, IEPs, the IDEA, or the help that was available for families whose children have disabilities.

That all changed when her daughter's backpack one day contained a flyer from the Parent Center in Miami. And doors and paths were opened... it's a journey that has taken Myriam deep into the heart of the Parent Center network...

...but we'll let Myriam tell you the story herself. From Miami to New Jersey, indeed.
