Exceptional Parent Magazine: http://www.eparent.com/

Description: Exceptional Parent Magazine has provided information and resources to families for over 35 years. On this website you can submit and respond to parents’ questions about your child’s disability; view free real- time seminars while asking physicians and other specialists questions and find products and services such as books, toys, videos, pediatric equipment, mobility products and summer camps.

Center for Parent Information and Resources: http://www.parentcenterhub.org/
