Through The Glory Days Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we can all work together to create a huge, positive impact in the lives of families. We are offering the support families need to feel equipped in their role as a special needs parent. Connecting them to resource guides, support organizations and handing them a planner to help navigate the coming months and years at the time if diagnosis and beyond.
The Glory Days Daily Planner was designed to meet the unique needs of a parent or caregiver raising a child who is differently abled. This planner was created by a mom living the everyday life of a special needs parent. Each page was thoughtfully designed with you in mind.

If you’re currently navigating how to share your child’s special needs diagnosis with friends and family, here are a few things to consider before you begin sharing the news.
