Providing parents of children with disabilities
with information, training, assistance, and support
Information For Students & Young Adults
We had originally planned to include an area on this website
for students, specifically for teens and young adults
who are still in school or who may have gone on
to higher education and/or employment.
We were going to give the student area of this website
a different look - a colorful, fun format with information,
links to fun activities out there on the web, and opportunities
for students with disabilities to meet other students,
through both a message board and chat room.
We hired a Youth Coordinator, a young adult with a disability,
to help us develop and maintain the Student area on our website.
It was our Youth Coordinator who steered us in a different direction!
"Teens won't want to go to a website that's cfl-PARENTS-dot-org."
So a new website was created.
And it's very cool.
