Marilyn Call has been named director of the Coalition for the Handicapped. She will bring her own expertise to the task because two of her three children have a disability. Her 13-year-old daughter is autistic with a profound hearing loss. Her 10-year-old daughter also has profound hearing loss.

Call has served as a parent consultant at the Utah Parent Training and Information Center, executive director of the Utah Society for Autistic Children and in many other positions.
