A n o t e fr o m t h e p u b l i s h e r : When you have a child in need, where do you turn? Hundreds of thousands of families in the Portland metro area face this situation every year. Our kids have extra challenges like allergies, autism, gifted, ADD/ADHD, failure to thrive, learning delays, sensory processing disorder, cerebral palsy, asthma, orthopedic needs, food intolerances, developmental delays, speech/language delays, feeding challenges, Aspergers, dyslexia, and many other diagnoses. My own family has experienced multiple learning and medical challenges. In fact, we’ve seen over 40 specialists in the metro area. So although I don’t know your personal story, I can say that I understand how difficult it can be to find the help your child needs. That’s exactly why I created the Exceptional Child Resource Directory to connect families with the local help their child needs - no matter what the diagnosis. Because finding the help your family needs should not be hard. The best part? All the resources in this Directory are recommended by a family like yours. It’s like getting a referral from a friend:) Thanks for picking up the very first edition of the Exceptional Child Resource Directory! All the best,

Teresa Denney Publisher/Owner Life is Great! Media teresa@lifeisgreatmedia.com Founder, SPD Connect, www.spdconnect.com/facebook Co-Founder, Sensory Seminars

P.S. Please share with me great businesses that have helped your child. Email me - teresa@lifeisgreatmedia.com - and I’ll try to include them in the 2014 Directory.
