Grandparenting a Child with Special Needs, Paperback / softback Book

Grandparenting a Child with Special Needs Paperback / softback

Description

When a new baby is born into a family, grandparents are excited about having a baby to enjoy and love.

If the child is born with a disability, it can be difficult to know how to react and how best to help the child and the family as a whole.

This book provides guidance on how to grandparent a child with special needs and give every grandchild the love and care they deserve and parents the added support they need. From coming to terms with a diagnosis, to helping with the transition from adolescence to adulthood, the book gives clear advice on grandparenting a child with special needs throughout their life.

The author covers the medical, emotional and practical aspects of being a grandparent and explores important issues such as researching resources for specialized care, accessing financial and legal resources and, just as importantly, how to have fun and spend quality time with a grandchild with a disability.

The book also addresses how to handle the diagnosis of a serious accident or progressive illness. Grandparenting a Child with Special Needs is a unique guide for grandparents keen to make a difference to the lives of their children and their grandchildren.
