The Paras Family

“When my daughter, Carly, was born prematurely with medical issues, diagnosed with Turner Syndrome, and expected to have developmental delays, Brigham and Woman’s Hospital referred us to the Kennedy-Donovan Center’s Attleboro Early Intervention Program. Not knowing what Early Intervention was all about, my husband and I soon realized just how important this Program would be in her early years of development. With the caring assistance and expertise of her service coordinators and therapists, Carly was able to meet many of the necessary milestones. I had expressed to her service coordinator how I would love to work for such a wonderful program that did so much for my daughter and family. Not long after Carly’s graduation from Early Intervention, the Family Liaison position had become available at the Kennedy-Donovan Center. I applied and was hired. Twenty years later, I am still fortunate enough to work for this wonderful Program who helped my daughter in so many ways! It has been an honor to be a part of this Team and have the opportunity to help support the families we serve.” -Betsy Paras.
