Parenting Challenges

It has been said that being a parent to a child with additional needs is the most challenging, yet rewarding experience. Parents go through many emotional hurdles when first confronted with their child’s different learning needs, and will continue to conquer challenges far greater than you can ever imagine yourself accomplishing. As we make our child or children front-and-centre in every decision we make in life going forward, it’s also important to remember to take care of ourselves. Seek support whenever possible; share your feelings with those around you; and don’t forget that it’s okay to be human. With that at the core of what we do every day, you too can be a great parent to a child with additional needs, and meet all the parenting challenges head on.
