Special Needs Children: A Guide to Resources
Since we represent children and families in medical malpractice cases against hospitals and health care companies in DC, Maryland and Virginia, we work with a lot of parents and families of special needs children. One of our core services in investigating the medical malpractice is to determine the cause of the injury, and get the help the child and family needs to take care of someone with a serious disability, who often can't care for themselves. And, over the years, we've learned a lot from our clients.
So, we have published a resource guide for parents of children with special needs in the D.C. area, based on our work with parents of kids with cerebral palsy and other developmental delays - there are tips and places to go for information on respite care, camps, financial resources, and more to get parents started on getting the long-term lifetime help that they need.
Many people don't realize or focus on the fact that their child with cerebral palsy, developmental delays and other medical conditions will outlive them, or they won't be able to physically care for their child as they get older.
We know that caring for a disabled child is a full-time, 24/7 job.
We're making it easier to get the basic information. And the best part? We update the resource guide as we hear from parents about what works and what doesn't. And we're always looking for ideas and information, so if you have a resource you think would help other families, send it to [email protected]
Getting Everything Your Special Needs Child Deserves: A Parent's Guide to Resources is available to anyone who orders it; and it's free. To order an copy, just call (202) 393 - 3320 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
