When you parent a child with special needs it can often feel like you have to reinvent the wheel every day. It is overwhelming. We have been there too. Windmills and Tulips will help to ease your burden by allowing you to focus on whats important…your child. We help you navigate through the many decisions that you have to make whether it be which therapy or therapist you should choose, which after school activities your child is able and willing to participate in, where you can purchase adaptive equipment for your child, or where to go to school! Do you need a sitter, do you need camp? Your best friend and your mother will have lots of advice for you but they won’t have answers. We do. We meet with you and your child, listen to you , hear you and guide you. Whether you have a baby, toddler or school age child we get you connected to the services you need to give your family the tools for success.
