Nicole Pratt's life as a disabilities advocate began 11 years ago when her daughter developed a condition called Pulmonary Bronchial Dysplasia. Six years later, her son was diagnosed with retinopathy stage 3 in both eyes and later cerebral palsy. Working to learn as much as she could to help her children, she attended a program called Partners in Policymaking where she focused on learning about all aspects of disability legal rights and programming for adults and children. She uses this knowledge in her job with Special Child Health Services, an agency serving children 0-22 and their families. With both of her children doing well, Nicole believes she has "found a true calling and career objective in assisting parents and children with or without disabilities." She attends Thomas Edison State College and is seeking a Social Service degree with a focus on special education.
