Living a Happy Life with a Special-Needs Child: A Parent’s Perspective
Living a Happy Life with a Special-Needs Child is the story of how Robin Williams Evans turned tragedy into triumph when she unexpectedly became the mother of a special-needs child. An invaluable resource for parents and caregivers of special-needs children, as well as anyone who wants to better understand them, it delivers practical advice for how to deal with a variety of situations one is likely to encounter when raising a special-needs child.
Topics Evans touches upon include surviving the neonatal intensive care unit, taking care of yourself and your significant other, organizing doctor’s appointments, managing hospital stays, skillfully navigating insurance, and finding childcare. Beyond the didactic value of this must-have text, it also offers something else inevitably stressed-out parents are in dire need of—hope for a happy life.
Focusing on the principles of a field of study known as posttraumatic growth, Evans shares her own personal experiences and outlines very specific steps parents can take to allow their trauma not to devastate them but to change their lives for the better.
In Living a Happy Life with a Special-Needs Child, you will find what you need to outgrow pain and step into power.
