Raising Special Needs Children

If you are a parent of a child with special needs, some of the more generic parenting resources might not be particularly relevant. You might be looking for advice to help prepare your child for school, to help your child's educators better understand his or her needs, or to make everyday tasks easier for both you and your child. Either way you'll find many resources specific to special-needs children and their parents online.

  • On many computers, clicking the "Ctrl" key and the "+" symbol will make text on a Web page larger, making it easier to read for a child with limited vision or one who has trouble sorting through lots of information.
  • In the "Connecting to Other Parents" section of this guide, you can connect with other parents who have experiences similar to your own. To find these parents, search on these sites for key terms relating to your child's special needs; you can also search for these terms on a regular search engine.
