Together is the best way to keep on keeping on.

 

Being a parent or carer for a child with special needs can be tough, but when you surround yourself with a positive, healthy network of friends, relatives and specialists, it lifts things a little. Likewise, connecting with others in similar circumstances can make things easier too.

That’s what Positive Special Needs Parenting is – a community of people just like you who share stories, ask questions, offer advice and just generally remind you that there is a brighter and lighter side to life.

It’s just a little thing, but it can make a big difference.
