It would have been nice if your kid came with a manual. But, it doesn't work that way. EVERYTHING NO ONE TELLS YOU ABOUT PARENTING A DISABLED CHILD is your honest, relatable, actionable guide to the systems, services, and supports you'll need to do the things your child needs in order to be their very best, including:
Doctors & Therapists
Insurance & Social Services
Disability Rights and Advocacy
Finances and Future Planning
Your Role as a Parent Caregiver
How Others Will Relate to Your Child
Paperwork, paperwork, and more paperwork
Stemming from my own experience parenting two amazing kiddos, one of whom has multiple disabilities, EVERYTHING NO ONE TELLS YOU ABOUT PARENTING A DISABLED CHILD sources my firsthand experience, along with fellow parents on this journey, and leading experts, many of whom are disabled themselves.
This can be done. Parenting any child is a lot of work. My child has a rare genetic syndrome, so disability is part of who he is. And, here's the thing: I'm not out to change my child. I'm out to change the world.
Let's do this.
