Our organization, MyChild, was created as a resource for parents across the country to connect with helpful organizations aimed to assist children with Cerebral Palsy. Given the fact we are located in Michigan, we are very aware of the unique circumstances facing special needs children in this state. This state faces a wide range in weather, school systems and more. As a result, our help for children in Michigan is built to assist, and customized to adjust to the programs available and for making an impact on your child!
Michigan is a tremendous state to live in, with moderate temperatures in the summer, amazing scenery in the fall and the beauty of winter. However, it does have its challenges as well. Many parents face challenges with the school systems, like parents across the country do, while others face an uphill battle with creating their child’s IEP. As we said, these challenges aren’t specific to Michigan, but do represent an area our care team is happy to help with, in addition to having written about them on our blog.
