Your Disability Connection

Information and Support for Families Raising Children with Disabilities

Your Disability Connection is a local cable television program created by Susan Cauley, a mother of two children with autism. She created this show to offer support for other families. If you or your loved ones are dealing with issues relating to raising children with disabilities this is a resource you may wish to consider. Susan is also seeking support from individuals and businesses to expand her programing.

Below is a letter from Susan explaining the origin of the program and how you can support:

Greetings:

The show “Your Disability Connection” is personally a very special project for me.  As a single parent struggling to raise two children with autism, I had to learn how to effectively teach and advocate for them at a time when autism was a fairly unknown diagnosis by the general population. I found there was very little support.  Even now that they have grown older, living in group homes, support is still an issue and learning new approaches and information about autism is constant.

Guided by this endless journey and my personal experience, I decided to develop a show geared towards parents that live every day with challenges and frustrations caring for their child with a disability. Most parents feel alone in the difficult task of raising children with special needs and could use some encouragement from other parents facing the same responsibilities. This is reflected in every show produced, sharing valuable knowledge that allows me to reach out to other parents that are also searching for answers, direction and support.

Dedicated to providing accurate, up to date information, each guest on our show is a professional in their field or a parent who shares their experiences on a particular topic. The guests discuss issues pertinent to the subject matter in a conversational half hour format.  Topics that have been covered include guardianship, financial planning, respite care, autism, bullying, the IEP and much more. The show is produced in Woburn and broadcast on several cable stations including WPMC. All 34 shows are also available to watch on YouTube.com.

As a business owner I am seeking your assistance in increasing our coverage area and viewership.  We hope to make the show more accessible to anxious and overwhelmed parents of children with disabilities”
