Five Things You Shouldn't Do To A Special Needs Child
1. Self Diagnose
One thing to never do when you sense your child might be needing special attention is never to self diagnose.
The diagnosis for a special needs child varies depending on the child's condition.
While some conditions are straight forward, others require a diagnose to identify what exactly is the matter.
If your child is exhibiting any symptoms that might cause you to worry, the right thing to do is to see a doctor. The sooner you get help needed the better. No need for second guessing or comparing your child's condition to a neighbor’s
When my child suddenly stopped talking, and the doctor said it was withdrawal syndrome, the only thing I wanted to do was to run away with her because I got tired of answering questions.
This is probably the first option for a parent with special needs child but it is not the best for the child neither the parent.
Isolation will only make the child feel worse than they already do.
Special needs children should be allowed to live freely and mingle with other kids. Weather within the family or the outside world.
4. STOP BLAMING YOUR CHILD.
5. DON'T STOP LIVING.
