One of the aspects of raising a child with special needs is having all sorts of other professionals involved in your and your child’s life.

Learning the best way to manage these relationships has been a steep learning curve for me! I’ve had some really good experiences, and others that have left me traumatized!

If I had to give one piece of advice to other parents just starting out with their child’s therapists I would say, be careful of any therapist who leaves you feeling incompetent as a parent when you leave the room!

There’s a big difference between feeling inspired to do more or even challenged (and a little uncomfortable) and feeling totally rubbish about yourself! The good therapists know how to challenge and inspire you to be the best parent you can without leaving you crushed.
