Adrian's Place has grown out of our experience as parents of Adrian, a child with boundless energy who was born with Cerebral Palsy. With each stage of his growth we faced new challenges, often making decisions without the insight of those who had been though this before, and without community support that was and is sometimes needed. Now that Adrian is a teen, we realize there are limited opportunities for young adults with special needs to meet new friends, to have more peer typical experiences and to spend more time outside of the home......all with the goal of enjoying these important years.
We also realize that families and friends of our young adults do not necessarily have an organic opportunity to meet, talk, share experiences and offer advice.
We created Adrian's Place for this purpose. What it becomes now will evolve from our shared experiences within our new community.
