Teri Turgeon Perkins Infant-Toddler Program Director

“Perkins inspires a level of trust that allows parents to relax, sometimes for the first time since their child was diagnosed. They start looking toward their child’s future, their education and their independence. That’s the peace of mind and hope for the future you provide when you support Perkins.”
