OUR story

started when....

Northern Nevada Disability Resource Network (formerly Northern Nevada Disability Access) is an inspired project expressed through the eyes of my son who was born with developmental delays.

Josiah is now a young adult diagnosed with a rare chromosomal disorder while in his early teens. Despite the efforts of locating services to enhance his developmental disabilities, we were limited to obtaining supportive services to begin specialized therapy to improve his well-being. 

While so many parents like myself, I was inspired to create a resource network to help families like myself to help them navigate to find providers in Northern Nevada.


Amy Auerbach

Project owner/manager, inspired to create this website to help families like herself find service providers.
