Boca Raton, FL — September 10, 2010 – Unicorn Children’s Foundation is proud to announce the election of its leadership team for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. President Dr. Rafael Cabrera, Vice-President Juliette Ezagui, Treasurer Valeria Rosenbloom, Corresponding Secretary Lori Cabrera, and Recording Secretary Joanne Gabay have been selected to lead Unicorn Children’s Foundation 2010-2011 Board of Directors.
“As we embark on our second decade improving the lives of children with neurodevelopmental disorders, we look forward to some very ambitious and far-reaching projects,” shared President Rafael Cabrera. “We are truly fortunate to have the support and knowledge of many here in our South Florida Community and abroad.”
Unicorn Children’s Foundation supports programs and services in the tri-county South Florida area as well as some international efforts. Highlights of these projects include: promoting early identification of symptoms associated with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD, bipolar, dyslexia, or other learning disorders through our expanding free Mobile Community Developmental Clinic Program; supporting programs designed to develop and disseminate evaluation and treatment guidelines through Unicorn sponsored programs at major universities; creating an Alliance of Special Needs Service Providers and Organizations to foster communication and collaboration across disciplines so that the gaps in services and programs in our community can be more readily identified; and educating parents and professionals through educational programs to ensure the availability of adequate tools and resources
Vice-President Juliette Ezagui explains, “We have a very exciting schedule of events planned this upcoming year that are greatly needed to bring our future programs of helping these children and young adults to enable them to live a better life.”

|Unicorn Children Foundation (UCF) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to education, awareness and research on behalf of children and young adults with developmental, learning and communication disorders such as ADHD, autism, bipolar, and dyslexia. UCF was founded in 1994 by Dr Mark Rosenbloom, an Emergency Physician, after his son was misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated by one “autism professional” after another. Out of his pain and frustration, and a wish to provide hope for all families with children who suffer from these disorders, the Unicorn Children’s Foundation was born. Since 1994, UCF has raised well over $10,000,000 and highlights of its accomplishments include: launching the Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning Disorders, creating a new peer-reviewed journal, developing and disseminating worldwide ground-breaking and extensive evaluation and treatment guidelines, launching a yearly scientific conference, creating the first fully-endowed chair in Communications and Learning Disorders at a major university (Nova Southeastern), and sponsoring a unique Mobile Developmental Clinic program that provides free developmental screenings and parent consultations in traditionally underserved areas of South Florida.
