ParentMap, October 2014 Issue

Published on: September 27, 2014

To advance our village, it takes a village. At ParentMap, we hope that we can be a part of your village as you navigate the joys — and challenges — of parenting. This issue explores the collaborations between parents, grade schools, corporations and colleges to get kids to “interdependence, not complete independence.” We look at how emerging resources are helping families as they navigate different phases and challenges, from having an infant with a cleft palate to sending a young adult with autism off to college.

Also, don't miss our story on how popular destinations are now adding long-awaited accommodations for families with children who have special needs. Why? Because there is no force greater than parents uniting and advocating for their kids. This is our village!
