开始

Each family receiving a diagnosis for their child will have their own unique experience, 感情。, 和观点. Below is a letter written by a 十大正规网赌软件 Parent, reflecting their personal journey:

Like you, I am a parent of a child with a disability. His specific diagnosis is unimportant here; what matters is that we are sharing an experience with a complex emotional landscape. One that changes the course of our lives, touches our hearts, and colors all of our relationships.

A diagnosis rarely happens in a moment. It unfolds slowly – as small observations, 直观的视角, and comments from others (often unsolicited) start to coalesce into a picture. A picture that disrupts and demands more that we may feel we can give. 然后是短的, sharp days when everything we know but hold at arms length is summarized in a diagnosis, 一个评估, 甚至是一封随机的电子邮件. Spelled out in black and white, it suddenly has a weight and significance we are rarely ready for.

At no time in our lives are we more in need of a village to help raise our child. And yet for most of us, one of the first 感情。 is a profound sense of being alone. 幸运的是,你不是. In 十大正规网赌软件, more that 7,000 families are traveling a similar path. 多于1,000 District 特殊教育 Teachers, Paraeducators, and related staff choose to come to work each day to support 学生 with disabilities.

Building your child’s village is not easy. It requires engagement when retreat is easier. It demands whole-heartedness when your heart feels broken. It needs trust when you feel betrayed by the universe. This is hard work but the benefits, I believe, far outweigh the effort.

Find a community of parents who understand and support you. Align yourself with people who help you feel healthy, hopeful, and empowered. Make space both for grief and for celebration.

Discover the ordinary in your extraordinary experience. Through repetition, these acts restore our resilience. They bolster our capacity to care for our children, our partners, our communities, and ourselves. They transform hope from a threat to a companion.

We parents form a curious sort of family, thrown together by fate. We are passionate, constantly adapting and growing with our experiences. Together we have strength and wisdom. 我欢迎你们所有人成为合作伙伴, ready to transform the world into a more human, 灵活的, and dignified place for all of our children.
