Submit a Blog Post

Are you a parent with a disability? Share your experience in a blog post or video. 

Share your story in our blog about the experiences and needs of parents with disabilities.

We believe in placing parents with disabilities at the forefront, and one way to do that is invite them to share their own experiences. We built this blog to amplify stories of a racially, culturally, and experientially diverse group of people.

Our current featured topic focuses on going "back to"—back to school, back to the workplace (after working remotely during the pandemic), etc., whatever it is that you and your family might be going back to this fall or preparing to go back to.
