Life Advocates

To help parents in becoming the best advocate for their child, here are some resources that provide information that may help your child, whether he/she is diagnosed or not with a special need:

1) Inclusion Works! Creating Child Care Programs That Promote Belonging for Children with Special Needs 

2) All Children Are Special: How to Know When a Child Needs Help 

SPECIAL NEEDS

Children with learning disabilities, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and related disorders puzzle parents because of their many abilities and disabilities, whether they are diagnosed or not. It can also be tough to understand how much of their behavior is the nature of the condition and how much is oppositional. It is easy for parents to sense a child’s feelings of inadequacy and then feel bad as a parent for not being able to do more.
