Rosie and Manny Perez first noticed something was different about their little boy as he sat in front of the television. William Perez, nearly three years old at the time, was entertained watching his favorite movie, Toy Story, when his parents called out to him. Try as they might he didn’t seem to be able to actually hear them. This concerned the Perez family and eventually prompted them to have William evaluated. After undergoing several tests with doctors their son was diagnosed with Fragile X Syndrome.
UNIQUE ME MAGAZINE is taking the “family” magazine concept to the next level. It will be a magazine for families that have BOTH typically developing children and children with physical, medical, mental, emotional, behavioral, and educational special needs.
UNIQUE ME MAGAZINE is a publication that will bring AWARENESS, provide INFORMATION and INSPIRE everyone.
The Co-Founders of UNIQUE ME MAGAZINE are both parents of children with Cerebral Palsy. However, they are also the parents of typically developing children. They have personal knowledge of the struggle and endless search for INFORMATION that pertains to their “unique” children, but are never at a loss for information related to their typical children.
UNIQUE ME MAGAZINE is the publication that they, and countless other parents, educators, advocates, etc., have been wanting for years.
