Every parent wants their kids to be ahead of the game and have the advantages perhaps they didn’t have. But it’s an all-too-common story for parents and caregivers — especially those caring for kids with special needs or disabilities who don’t carry the more common labels (autism, ADHD) — that they are often left navigating the system and fighting to get the support needed.

Navigating a complex system of diagnosis and treatment for children with special needs — especially children with less obvious needs — can be a lonely and frustrating endeavor. Your Child’s Voice will empower parents and caregivers of children with mild to moderate disabilities to be the voice for their children, and advocate for them the best they can.

Drawing on the author’s experience as a patient advocate and her ongoing journey getting support for her own son, this book includes personal stories about fighting to ensure files didn’t get lost in the system; the challenges of getting support in school; getting tests in a timely manner; and also includes exercises and checklists to help caregivers prepare for appointments and ask for help.

Read about:

• Understanding your child’s individual needs
• The importance of a team captain/case manager
• Who should be on your team
• Getting and staying organized
• Navigating wait lists and meetings
• Obtaining educational assistance
• Creating a support system

With the tips in this book, you will learn that you are not alone, and that you can help your child thrive.
