EDC Talks: A Passion for Supporting Families

Parents and caregivers of children with developmental disabilities often struggle to access needed educational, health, and social services because those services are “fragmented,” says EDC’s Sarah Jerome.

Jerome wants to change that. And her motivation is personal—her brother is on the autism spectrum.

“Seeing all the gaps in services that we have had to overcome, that motivates me to help other families that we serve here at EDC,” says Jerome.

In this video, Jerome discusses how she is helping other families navigate core services and how her own experiences have shaped her career.
