Let Paula show you how our Guides work


Meet Paula…

Paula has a 13-year-old son with special needs. Worrying about his future keeps her up at night. Information online is overwhelming, unreliable and generic. Expert help is too expensive.


Paula visits Exceptional Lives

When Paula visits the Exceptional Lives website, she finds free, easy-to-understand Guides. They’re designed for parents of children or adults with disabilities. Each Guide takes as few as 15 minutes to walk through!


Paula creates a personalized Guide

As Paula moves through a Guide, she answers simple questions. The software behind the Guides uses her answers to customize the information she sees.


Paula takes action!

Each Guide provides clear next steps that Paula can take to achieve her and her son’s goals. She even gets a handy to-do checklist she can save and print! With the help of Exceptional Lives Guides, Paula knows how to access the services and supports her son needs to thrive.
