Resources for Special Needs Kids

This is really cool.

Country star Zac Brown of the "Zac Brown Band" is building a camp for chilldren and teens with typical and special needs near his home in Peachtree, Georgia. According to the camp's website, Zac Brown says he wants to give children of all abilities the opportunity to experience the magic of the outdoors, and he looks to do that with the 400 acres of land designated just for the new camp.

The camp is named 'Camp Southern Ground' and it is the result of Brown's own experience as a camp counselor. It will serve children ages 7-17 that have all different types of abilities and needs. 

Here at Donahoe Kearney we talk to parents with children with special needs all the time, and we know that you are constantly looking for resources for your kids in the D.C. area, including camps that will allow your children to flourish and shine, like Camp Southern Ground. 

Camp Southern Ground is in Georgia, at least a 10 hr drive from D.C., so here's a link to some similar resources and camps for kids with special needs in our area. Here on our website, you'll find camps, medical services, respite care, after school care, transportation services, and much much more.

Remember, at Donahoe Kearney our main concern is getting you the help you need, which in some instances, might be information on local resources that will help you or a family with a child suffering from cerebral palsy, developmental delay or the effects of being born premature.

You can call us today at 202-393-3320 to get your copy of Getting Everything Your Special Needs Child Deserves: A Parent's Guide to Resources. It's free of charge, and there is no obligation to you once you've received the Guide. 

D.C. lawyers for special needs kids

We give away our resource guide to anyone with a special needs child.  But sometimes, the child's condition was caused by the medical care he or his mom received.  We have seen cases where parents of severely disabled teenagers have come to us and we have determined the disabled child's injuries were caused by bad medical care.

Why is that important?

We use the legal system to compensate those kids for their injury and condition and to get them the resources they will need so they don't need to go into a Medicaid home - someone can take care of them, long after the parents are gone. 

If you or anyone in your family has suffered a serious injury, let us hear your story. You will be able to talk to an attorney to figure out what is best for you and your family. Hear from some of our clients about their experience with us
