From time to time, the Waterloo Region Family Network (WRFN) is asked to distribute information on behalf of third parties. WRFN provides general information to self-advocates and families of children with special needs. The information provided on this website is not a recommendation, referral or endorsement of any resource, therapeutic method, or service provider. WRFN is not responsible for any information or services provided by third parties. You are urged to use independent judgment when considering any resource.
As we got closer to the launch of the new website we realized that all of our blog posts from the previous website would be lost. As we know many families go back and read past issues of Family Pulse, we wanted to make sure you had access to the issues published in 2017/18.
We look forward to building a new blog with important information and initiatives to keep you and your family up to date!
