The English Family: Transitioning into Adulthood (Special Needs)
How many single mothers are out there like Monique English whose heart is bursting with joy because her twenty-one-year-old daughter, Kiara, is graduating? Kiara is graduating from the Children’s Learning Center at United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County (UCPN), Roosevelt, Long Island, where she has been a student since the age of three. Monique tells their story and Mr. Kurt Murgo of UCPN offers viewers advice and information about resources.
The mission of CP Nassau is to (a) affect positively the quality of life of persons with cerebral palsy, others with severe disabilities and multiple service needs, and the families of both and (b) prevent cerebral palsy and minimize its effects.
The Foundation strives to touch the lives of special children through its support of workshops and programs of enrichment and therapy.
