Special Needs Parents are Special, Too
Being a parent is tough. Throw in your child having special needs, sometimes even severe disabilities, and the landscape of your daily walk as a parent changes even more. Rather than planning for college, you may be concerned if you child will hear, or see or walk, much less walk onto the campus of a major university. And when I look at those parents, I cannot help but be amazed by their courage, love and determination to give their children the best possible care and the best chance in life possible.
This issue is meant for those parents who take care of their children with special needs. I hope it also honors them and their commitment to their families, and to raising individuals to be the best they can be and productive members of society.
We hope the resources in this issue will help those parents, and the new parents who suddenly find out their child has learning delays or disabilities. Rather than feeling helpless, we want to help empower them. We also want to honor some of the many organizations that serve them with the stories we’ve included this month.
Thanks for Reading!
