When your child is diagnosed with a disability or special need, it's important to get support. You're not alone, even if it feels that way sometimes.

Raising a child with special needs

  • Accept support and join a group for parents of children with disabilities or special needs. These parents can help you find resources and information, and provide emotional support.
  • Talk with your doctor about your child's specific needs and challenges at home. Your routine at home may need to follow along with the specific treatment your child is receiving.
  • Search for the best available program to fit your child's special needs. Contact your local school district or health department to learn more about preschool and other special education programs that are available in your area.
  • Learn about your child's disability. The more you know, the more you will be empowered. Go to the library and find out all you can or visit trusted websites.

Extra Tip: Take time out for yourself. As much as you want to give your child all your attention, if you're tired and frustrated, you won't be able to put your best foot forward as a parent.
