Resources for Parents, Educators, and Administrators who are raising or supporting children with disabilities.
Parents with children on the Autism Spectrum often feel isolated from their community. Very often good friends and even close family members stop visiting the home, inviting the family out or calling and checking in. On top of what parents are dealing with in order to get the right diagnosis and treatment plans for their child, parents feel confined to their homes and alone in their journey.
Parents are often their own toughest critics. When the idyllic picture of what we thought our family would look like is a stark contrast to what the reality is, we add on even more stress by feeling guilty about what we did or didn't do in a a sea of very complex situations. For parents of special needs children, these instances are magnified, but they are recurring thoughts of every parent, nearly every day. Break the cycle of guilt for your sake and for the sake of your child.
