Health Tip: Parenting a Disabled Child

11/28/11

(HealthDay News) -- Parenting a disabled child can be quite a challenge, but there are plenty of programs and services that can help.

The womenshealth.gov website offers these suggestions for the parents of disabled children:

  • Find out as much as possible about your child's particular disability.
  • Talk about issues and concerns with friends, family members or parents of other disabled children.
  • Every state has a range of programs and services for disabled children and their parents. Learn which of them suits your needs.
  • Join a support group.
  • Stick to a daily routine.
  • Take each day one-at-a-time.
  • Take good care of your own physical and emotional health.
