Navigate Life Texas Website: Online Resource for Parents of Children with Special Health-Care Needs
From 2012 through the present, SUMA conducted research, produced and edited website content, and marketed Navigate Life Texas (NLT): an award-winning website for parents of children with special health-care needs. NLT is an online resource, written predominantly by parents of children with special health-care needs, and spans topics ranging from early childhood intervention through the transition to adulthood and beyond.
NLT helps families access critical information and has received significant praise from parents, community organizations, healthcare providers, and state legislators. During the field-testing process, almost all parents described the website as helpful, informative, and necessary. NLT won two Communicator Awards in 2016: the Award of Distinction for Websites – Family/Parenting and the Award of Distinction for Websites – Health.
