Thanks to all who voted! IPUL is the winner of the CDA 2030 grant competition.
We are so excited to increase accessibility in communication by placing AAC boards in Coeur d'Alene parks, and hopefully all over the state at some point.

Thank you, CDA 2030 for making this possible!

Can You Give Us A Few Minutes?

Idaho Parents Unlimited is actively involved in the Family Voices CARES Act Telehealth Project. Family Voices is seeking input from families who have children with disabilities and special health care needs to identify "family readiness" in telehealth services.

We would greatly appreciate a few minutes of your time to complete the following survey. Thank you!

OK, How About a Few More Minutes?
Dear friends,

The Center on Disabilities and Human Development at the University of Idaho has been working on a project to identify stress levels and specific stress-producing factors in parents or caregivers who have children of any age with autism living in their home. They are specifically looking at stress-producing factors during the COVID -19 pandemic. They have created the following survey and have asked that we share it with others who may be interested in completing the survey and/or sharing it with others. The questionnaire includes a total of 26 items with 2 related questions for each item and should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. The first page is a Consent Letter. Once you submit your consent to participate the survey will be displayed. The arrow at the bottom right of the screen will advance you to the next page of the survey. All responses are anonymous. If you would like to receive a report once we have summarized the results- they would be happy to share.
