“Our goal is to inspire parents and families to believe in a better future for their loved ones, to become part of their lives in action, because parents are called to be the mentors, and best therapist for their children’s.“ Lachapelle, mother of two kids with autism said. “Un Paso a la Vez, will provide information, emotional support, therapies and all the tools for those people under the umbrella of what we called Special Families. The official website Unpasoalavez.com is in Spanish because we believed the Latino community needs more resources in our language.”
