Emotional support for parents of children with special needs
This website signposts to emotional support (including counselling) for parents and carers of children with special needs. Many parents of disabled children or children with special needs face additional associated challenges in practical, physical and emotional terms. Sometimes when life doesn't follow an expected, mainstream, non-disabled path it can make you feel isolated and like you're the only one going through certain emotions and experiences.
The aim of these pages is to provide a virtual home for parents and carers to realise you are not alone. There are many other families also going through similar experiences and feeling similar complex emotions. Some of the thoughts and experiences of other families are included under words of wisdom. Hearing from other parents can help support our emotional well-being
