Help for Families With Special Needs
If you're a parent of a child with special needs, you likely strive even more than the average mom or dad to give your child the best chance at having a comfortable and happy life.

From educating yourself and others about your child's physical, emotional, learning, and/or cognitive needs and abilities to choosing a school to dealing with bullying and discrimination, making sure that your child learns, grows, and thrives in supportive environments and communities can be a challenge. You or your child might sometimes feel isolated or lacking support, but there are resources that can help.

A new handbook from PhDInSpecialEducation.com offers resources for parents at every stage of the journey of caring for kids with special needs. With a focus on organizations and communities that offer support, the guide features information on a wealth of topics, including:

  • Understanding your child's rights and needs.
  • Helping your child have a supportive group of friends.
  • Nurturing relationships that give you professional, emotional, and social support.
  • Teaching your child how to feel confident and how to identify and build their strengths.
  • Planning for your child's future.

Check out the Handbook for Special Needs Parenting, filled with helpful resources and the important reminder that you and your child are not alone.
