  • The understanding that no two people are the same and that is a good thing. Accepting the uniqueness of the individual and also celebrating the differences can open your child up to a world of happiness.
  • Teaching your child that a disability is not who the person is and there are many cool and fun attributes that they have. All kids have to do is find them through play and friendship.
  • Children with disabilities are like all children. They also want friends, respect and to be included.
  • Do not be afraid of children with disabilities. They make look different, but once you get to know them, they are the same child looking for fun and joy.
  • Read books or watch YouTube videos about children with special needs and discuss them  with your children. Having an open dialogue with your children will make all the difference.

Don’t be afraid to talk to your children about difficult topics. Children need the love and support that their parents can give them and at the same time need parents to be there for them.
