Regale in The Ranch Makes Magic

Thank You to the hard-working Beach & Country Guild for producing the 10th Annual Regale in the Ranch to benefit UCP San Diego and the people we serve.

Our mission is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people affected by cerebral palsy and other disabilities.

New Resource for Parents of Kids with Special Needs

UCP San Diego is pleased to announce the launch of Start Here, a new digital platform to provide parents of children with disabilities with a wide range of critical and comprehensive resources.

Start Here offers caregivers a trusted source for guidance on everything from the basics of cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome, spina bifida, and other intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as managed care advice about how to be an effective advocate for their child. As of 2016, 7.37 million people in the United States had intellectual or developmental disabilities, according to the Institute on Community Integration at the University of Minnesota.

Adapt Community Network, our affiliate in New York City, has developed the website and is launching it in association with United Cerebral Palsy.

“The goal of Start Here is to equip parents and caregivers with a roadmap and guide to getting the best information so they can negotiate what can be an overwhelming and complicated system of services,” says Edward R. Matthews, CEO of ADAPT Community Network. “As we expand the site, we will bring additional resources, including informational sessions from experts on a variety of topics affecting the lives of children with differing needs.”

Armando Contreras, president & CEO of United Cerebral Palsy said, “Our world’s diverse and growing population includes an equally diverse and growing community of special needs children and adults. Start Here is meant to offer parents plain-spoken, practical guidance on how best to support their children and care for themselves in the process.”

UCP San Diego is proud to support the effort to develop this vitally important online resource.
