Special Needs Blogs and Books Recommended by Parents  
Have time to read you say? No way, you say. I'm the parent of a child with special needs and I spend most of my time online doing research ! While it can be difficult to find the time, reading can provide a perspective that can enhance your knowledge and help reduce the sense of isolation. We've compiled a list of books and blogs recommended by parents so you can get the most out of your summer reading.

Kids of all abilities are excited that summer is finally here! No more school often means that it's up to the grownups to entertaining the troops!
This events calendar features events hosted by CTN, our partner organizations and other local organizations that we thought may be of interest to your family. New events are added to our network calendar each week! Check out the upcoming dates for family fun, inclusive recreation programs, camp and parent workshops or coffee chats!

If you're interested in having your event posted on our calendar or have an idea for a seminar, workshop or fun-filled activity that you'd like to see CTN host, please contact us.
