  • New resource for parents with disabilities

    The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and the National Council on Disability (NCD) have joined forces to equip people living with disabilities with information about their rights as parents by creating a "Know Your Rights" toolkit.

    This 16-page booklet covers issues parents and prospective parents with disabilities face every day, including adoption and foster care, reproductive health, child welfare, family law, and what is required by law from government services. It also features a wealth of resources to obtain more information, and spotlights what actions have been taken across the nation.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
