Creating projects with our `cyber-neighbors': Epilepsy Foundation of America channel ... Parent Soup[R]-EParent.com `ADD Live Chat' ... etc.

Last September, this column introduced readers to the new "look" of EXCEPTIONAL PARENT'S Web site (http://www.eparent.com). Users were assured of a site that would evolve and be shaped according to their suggestions and input. The evolution of EPARENT.COM further unfolded in December, when it was officially launched as a full-fledged Web site.

As we reach our half-year mark this June, the blessings of your participation and enthusiasm have been carried-over, and are apparent, on EPARENT.COM--with its many fresh features and improvements.

Linking up with `cyber-neighbors'

So, what is new with EPARENT.COM? For starters, though last year's focus was on building our very own cyber-home, now we are vigorously reaching out to various "neighbors" in the on-line special needs community for joint projects or events.

Late last year we sent out letters to disability organizations, letting them know of our interest in linking up with their sites. The resulting positive response can be seen in EPARENT.COM'S Associations Channel, with its growing list of disability links.

Please continue to send us your request to be hyper-linked to EXCEPTIONAL PARENT'S Web site. At the same time, we are requesting a reciprocal link front your organization's Web site to ours at http://www. eparent.com. That way, members of your association can be provided with a doorway to the EPARENT.COM `hub' of rich and growing informational resources.

Hyper-linking is merely the start of EPARENT.COM'S on-line relationships with special needs organizations. From there, we are looking to create pages within our site which contain specific resources that those groups will share with us. For example, we are working very closely with the Epilepsy Foundation of America (EFA) (http://www.efa.org) to create an area on EPARENT.COM'S Associations Channel, which will be devoted purely to epilepsy resources. Simultaneously, the EFA will be constructing an EXCEPTIONAL PARENT/ EPARENT.COM special needs parenting page on its Information & Education Channel.
