We loved this conversation with Eric Jorgensen, and we’re sure you’ll walk away with as many insights as we did. If you’re a parent of a child with special needs, you’ll gain tremendous value from hearing Eric’s story and learning about the resources he’s created. Eric also shared valuable tips and an insider's perspective on making the hiring process more accessible for people with special needs, why it’s so important, and practical ideas on accessible accommodations in the workplace. Listen in to be a better advocate and ally to those with disabilities or special needs.
Eric Jorgensen, ChSNC, is the founder of Special Needs Navigator and a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer. His company was born out of his journey of being the father to a son with autism. After his wife's sudden and unexpected death right when he was retiring from the Navy, Eric was thrust into navigating the special needs world as a single father in a new state. He promised himself he would do what he could to prevent other families from experiencing what he’d lived through. This led to starting his business, Special Needs Navigator, which helps caregivers, families, and individuals navigate the maze of benefits, resources, and services for their children with special needs.
