families of individuals with disabilities
Families with individuals with disabilities face unique circumstances and challenges. You may find yourself feeling alone and isolated as the parent of a child with disabilities. Maybe your children without disabilities are acting out because your attention and resources are spread thin. Additionally, your son or daughter may be experiencing all the complex emotions and stigma that come with having a disability. This is hard to watch as a parent.
