Children 

Adolescents and Adults 



es like all of us. It is the responsibility of the adults in your child's world to learn how to support them successfully.

Your child is doing the very best your child can with the support available at this stage of their development.

You are not alone. Other parents can be your lifeline during difficult times. Locate and attend a parent support group or link up with one online to share common issues and concerns and brainstorm solutions.

Take care of yourself. Sometimes we become so involved in supporting our child that we don't take time for ourselves. Remember, you can't give from an empty cup.

Although your child may have significant needs, it's OK to take time for your other children and your spouse.

Be open to what others say, but trust yourself when it comes to your child and what your child needs. You know your child and have important knowledge to share with others about your child.

Remember, not everything has to be educational. Make sure your child has some time every day that's fun.

We all belong. Allow your child to participate in community activities and give the community the opportunity to learn to support your child.
