Tool for parents to navigate IEPs, SSI, guardianship, & health insurance

Founded in Cambridge in 2013, Exceptional Lives provides free online guides to parents of children with developmental disabilities. These Guides lead parents step-by-step through complex processes, such as how to:

  1. Optimize your health insurance
  2. Create an effective IEP
  3. Access SSI
  4. Navigate guardianship and its alternatives

For parents of youth with disabilities, one of the biggest barriers in accessing resources is simply knowing what is out there and how to go about enrolling for those services. There are many complicated processes and eligibility requirements for things like Individual Education Plans (IEPs), health insurance, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These guides hope to break down those barriers and make it easier for parents to connect with the services they need.

These individualized how-to guides give you relevant and actionable information tailored to each child’s needs, so parents can help their child thrive. They can take as little as 15 minutes to complete, making complicated topics simple and digestible for everyone.
