Children with Special Healthcare Needs

How can you get support while caring for a child with special healthcare needs?

It may be hard to care for a family member who has special healthcare needs. So it's important to find support so that you can give your child the best care you can.

Think about joining a support group in your area, or even online. These groups can help you connect with other parents who have a child with the same condition. They can also help you learn what resources you can find in your area.

Support groups can be a source of emotional support. But you may also find counseling useful. It can help you understand and deal with the wide range of emotions you may feel.

Your child will need help too. Providing emotional support for your child can help them cope with any problems they may face. And meeting other kids with the same condition can help your child feel like part of a community.
