Hear from families just how WDSRA impacts their lives:

Jana & Luke  Luke’s journey with WDSRA began with inclusion services in regular park district programs. That one-on-one support had a big impact early on. Now 15 years old, it’s regular WDSRA programs that are meeting his current needs. As Luke grows and needs more independence, WDSRA will continue to give him the support he needs to thrive.


Kevin & Erin  At 32 years old, Erin’s resume includes college student and author. Her first story was a self-published book at age 16. Her short stories were turned into a short film with actors with disabilities. That film turned into a feature that played at the Naperville Independent Film Festival … where Disney took notice. Erin was invited to submit script ideas to Disney’s animated show ‘Doc McStuffins’. Consequently, two of her stories were turned into animated shorts for the show. Now Erin can include ‘Disney writer’ on her credits. But that is just scratching the surface of who Erin is. This young lady has a lot to say and it is our privilege to give her a voice.
