The Navigate Life Texas (NLT) website www.navigatelifetexas.org, a project supported by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), launched June 2015. It was created to inform and empower parents of children with disabilities or special healthcare needs. Healthcare, education, insurance, medical diagnoses, transition to adulthood, and how to connect with other parents are among the many topics found on NLT. Here, parents share their perspectives on challenges and rewards they have faced, revealing their valuable first-hand experiences.
Navigate Life Texas was developed by parents for parents. Most of the content is written by parents of children and adults with disabilities or special healthcare needs. There are blogs of personal experiences, along with videos of parents and their families. Sign up today to receive Navigate Life Texas newsletter.
