A Different Path newsletter for parents of special needs children

Washtenaw County, Michigan, is the home of A Different Path newsletter, a non-profit quarterly publication that relies solely on individual donations to cover mailing and printing costs. I have posted the Fall 2012 newsletter here.

As always, A Different Path is written and produced by local parents and is both heartfelt and informative. This issue has an especially good article written by two parents on approaches to using assistive technology with two different children with cerebral palsy. Access to assistive technology is best viewed as an "engineering challenge" that allows children with CP to overcome physical barriers to give them more control over their environment. There is advice on who to talk to and costs for setting up assistive technology systems that work for the child.

Throw a few bucks their way by sending a check to:
