Welcome to Our Updated Site!

Hello!

Over the last several months I have been working toward updating the content on our site, Parents with Disabilities Online. It’s hard to believe that the site is more than 15 years old now, only a few months younger than my first child. So, it’s to be expected, I guess, that by now, there would be lots of broken links and outdated information.

I hope you’ll be patient as we go through this critical round of updates. It’s still only me, and I’m still a working mom, so it will be a while before all of the parts of the site are fully restored. In the meantime, if you know of resources that I haven’t listed, please be sure to let me know via the Contact Us page.

It’s 2:00 in the morning so I’m signing off. Watch the blog for news of updates as I get them done.

Goodnight for now,

Trish
