Exceptional Family TV Has Arrived!
Exceptional Parent, v40 n4 p42, 48 Apr 2010
When one has a child with special needs, chances are he or she is the only one in his or her immediate circle of family and friends. It can be downright frightening to be this isolated, given the profound severity of the situation. With neither friends nor family to connect with in Colorado, the author and his wife Renee reached out to the online community through a family blog and YouTube channel. This simple act completely altered their family perspective, opening up a great community of encouragement and understanding, guiding them into an adventure unlike anything they have done before. In this article, the author shares his story and describes how Exceptional Family TV began.
