We at eFamilyTV realize raising a child with special needs takes an extra amount of care as well as stress. Doctor appointments, therapies, treatments, surgeries, g-tubes, wheelchairs, communication devices – the family unit as a whole goes through extraordinary circumstances in comparison to other “typical” families. It is for this reason we call these families “Exceptional” as it defines the unusually good and outstanding role they play in the lives of their children.
Exceptional Family TV is about, for and to serve YOU. We promise to deliver engaging weekly episodes specifically designed for exceptional families.
