The BLOOM Magazine and Blog Supports Parents of Disabled Children

BLOOM is a magazine, blog, newsletter and speaker series that aims to engage parents of children with disabilities. Parenting is hard enough for anyone, but parents of children with disabilities face specific challenges, which is why it's useful for them to tap into an information resource and network for support and knowledge.

Created by the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital in Toronto, BLOOM magazine is published twice a year and covers a wide variety of topics and resources of interest to parents of children with a wide array of disabilities -- both physical and developmental.

What's great about BLOOM magazine is that editorial decisions rely on a committee consisting of both parents and professionals, who brainstorm story ideas, network with families and organizations and come up with the magazine editions, before generating feedback.
