One of the most difficult things for a parent to come to terms with is accepting the fact that your wonderful plans for your child aren’t going to turn out the way you envisioned. Well, I suppose you could say this about every parent at some point, but it digs a little deeper when the child has special needs. If you are a parent of a child with special needs, you know just how overwhelming this can be, especially when it comes to your child’s education.
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.
