Let's Go: Parenting a Special Child

How does it feel to be the parent of a special child? Children come into their parents' lives as blessings. It doesn't matter whether they are normal, healthy kids or children with a disability. They all bring smiles, feelings of joy and happiness, contentment and even bring out the inner child in us. Our instincts move us to protect them and keep them safe from harm.

So when we discover that our child is suffering from an impairment or a disease, our world shatters and seem to fall apart. However, there is a time for grief and a time for action. It may be difficult but we must pull ourselves together and be our child's voice.

As in any battle, one must learn as much as you can about the opponent. Thus, parents must empower themselves with information. Read about it, question those who know about it, and discuss with those with similar experiences. Find a support group. There is always strength in numbers. Finally, be your child's advocate. No matter how many people offer you their opinion, in the end, it is you who must make the final decision. And this is guided by your goal to provide the best possible support for your handicapped child.
