By Ana Grosshauser It is hard to believe that my involvement with NACD started back in 1992, over 25 years ago.  With that said I have had the pleasure of watching many young children grow up to be highly capable adults. Some of these wonderful families are in regular contact while other times I am totally floored, when a voice … Read More

by Lyn Waldeck Over the last few years, I have really been pleased to have families that we worked with in the past reconnect and provide updates.

Brags: Austin

by Sara Erling It is never too late to change and improve one’s function. That tastes nice,” Austin said as he ate half of my banana.
