When a family is dealing with a complex disease or a perplexing disability, the stress and frustration with those involved can be overwhelming. The challenge of effectively communicating your child’s needs while maintaining clarity with physicians and educators is the juggling act that most parents encounter.
J&TWF’s mission is to support families educationally, medically, and resourcefully throughout the United States, Canada, and beyond. J&TWF supports families by helping them understand the tools to navigate the medical and educational community, the tools to be as informed about their child’s disease or disability as possible, and the tools to embrace their family’s differences as well as individual needs.
J&TWF’s vision is to educate parents how to advocate responsibly and communicate effectively with the medical and educational community, provide families with the educational resources for a better understanding of their disease and/or disability, encourage a better appreciation of the dynamics involved in a special needs family and how to make it work to the benefit and support of each family member, and ensuring that families have access to support resources, educational resources, and medical resources regardless of financial capacity.
