A collection of resources for parents of young children with disability.
It is widely understood that the early years of a child’s life are critical to their development, regardless of their background. During this time, children learn and grow through play, exploration, and everyday experiences guided by their closest relationships.
When parents receive a diagnosis for their child during the early years, they can often feel confused and overwhelmed as they try to understand the implications of the diagnosis and what the future holds for their child. Amidst all the advice from medical and education professionals, it’s easy for the parent’s hopes and dreams for their child to get lost.
Listening to the stories and experiences of other parents who are further along in their journey can help parents understand what’s possible and reclaim their dreams for their children.
This collection offers a range of resources created by parents and experts focusing on the early years to support parents in this journey.
