Hi, my name is Jennifer Adams. My husband and I have three children , the youngest was born with severe brain loss. I quickly came to understand that I would be the voice of that child, I had to learn to advocate for all needs. I found myself talking to many people, insurance, early intervention, doctors, specialists- PT, OT, vision, hearing, teachers, etc.
It can be very overwhelming but there are people to answer those questions. Sometimes the hard questions need to be asked. I realize I am part of a community that began before my child and will continue forever. I am the beneficiary of many families and people with disabilities that have gone before me, working to secure opportunities for people with disabilities. It is my duty and your duty to continue those efforts for those families, individuals, and children with disabilities that are our future.
