My Child Without Limits

My Child Without Limits is an authoritative early intervention, online resource and community for families of young children ages 0-5 with developmental delays or disabilities, and professionals looking for a single, trusted, aggregate source of information that relates to their needs and interests.

The site also includes a National Resource Locator where visitors can find local service providers, community organizations and government agencies.

My Child Without Limits offers information in three basic areas:

  • Understand – this section will explain how children develop as they grow and provides parents with easy to understand milestones that they can use to help track their child’s development. This section also provides information about disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, and Rett syndrome.
     
  • Plan – this section offers guidance on where to go for early intervention services, treatments and therapies, assistive technologies, and working with experts;
     
  • Act– this section explores issues surrounding disability awareness, advocacy, and lifespan planning.

The My Child Without Limits Support Community provides a place where parents can connect with other parents and families. This online forum is where parents can give and get support and information from the critical period of initial diagnosis and beyond.
