of "Diana Michelle's Home Page" (aka "Trish and
John's Resources for Parents with Disabilities"), this site
bills itself as "The Internet's One-stop Resource for Parents
with Disabilities" - and it's pretty darn close. The work
of Trish Day, a mom with cerebral palsy, the site features information
about the Parent Empowerment Network (an e-mail group for parents
with disabilities), lots of resources, adaptive parenting aids,
medical resources, family stories, and links.
of this program is "to ensure that parents with disabilities
have the same opportunities as parents without disabilities to
raise their children within their homes, families, and communities."
Although the program services Pennsylvania parents, its web-based
library listings, parenting tips, and links are useful anywhere.
