Guiding children with special needs through life requires planning, patience, knowledge of resources and your child’s legal rights. A heads-up of what to expect doesn’t hurt either.
In this guide for special needs children you will find strategies and techniques to:
- Reduce the intensity and duration of meltdowns and tantrums.
- Improve the responses to transitions.
- Teach financial concepts and develop marketable skills.
- Make therapy equipment for home use.
- Guiding your special needs child through the challenges of mainstreaming.
- Plan for your child’s future employment and financial well being.
- Improve your records management
- Systemically compare therapies, learning programs and schools.
After twenty years of our own experiences working with doctors, educators, support groups, and government agencies, I Wish I Knew Then What I Know Now still provided my wife and me additional ideas, insights, and resources. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who has a child with special needs. From the types of community organizations that may able to provide assistance, to financial planning, to internet resources, This book will help point families at resources that they might otherwise never discover.
Theo Petritsch, father to a severely autistic son
I know I truly wished there was a helpful book to read, especially when we first found out and my child was younger. I felt like no one told me what would happen next or what to prepare for. Now I know there’s plenty I could’ve been told. I Wish I Knew Then What I Know Now’s organized advice fills a vast niche so desperately needed.
