For Parents

A booklet to assist parents upon hearing that their child has special needs Introduction This booklet is written by parents of people with special needs for parents who have just learned that their child has special needs. It is intended to be a personal, supportive and realistic aid in coming to terms with what most parents would describe as a devastating experience. It is more than an information booklet. This is a personal message of encouragement from a group of parents who have vigorously campaigned to ensure that a bright future awaits all children who are born with special needs.
