A Parent’s Journey: Navigating the Path to Diagnosis and Services

Do you ever wonder if your child might be missing some key developmental milestones? Are you seeing some behaviors or delays that give you cause for concern? As a parent, it can be hard to know where to turn and how to figure out next steps. In this Voices of Compassion podcast episode, we talk with Sarah Knepper, MEd, Educational Services Manager at EBC School and the mother of two young boys, one with disabilities.

Sarah shares her parenting journey — from the initial “pit in my stomach” and the shame she felt on the playground, to the validation of a diagnosis and finding the right supports for her son. Sarah’s perspective as both a mom and an educator is filled with “aha” moments, compassion and authenticity.
