Cerebral Palsy in DC, Maryland and Virginia
We've helped lots of families with kids with cerebral palsy get the resources they need to live a full life, and take away some of the worry, anxiety and stress that comes with being a parent of a child with special needs. We do this by holding hospitals in DC, Maryland and Virginia accountable through medical malpractice cases when malpractice is the cause of your child's condition.
Here's what we've learned about families with a special needs child:
You are resilient. The days are long when you are responsible for another person who is completely dependent on you. Even if you have a nurse coming in part-time, the nursing service doesn't always come through (or send a good one) and you are always responsible for your child's care. Feeding, bathing, changing and a number or critical medical issues you better than the doctors, nurses and therapists at - you are the expert at now.
You are flexible. No one knows better than you that life doesn't always go as planned. And there are lots of times you have to change plans (big and small) on the fly to accommodate your child. To make his or her life better. To keep them from harm. To help them any way you can.
You are caring. Nothing - nothing - means more to you than your child, and his or her welfare. You will do anything for them.
You are the reason we developed and published Getting Everything Your Special Needs Child Deserves: A Parent's Guide to Resources - based on real life recommendations from parents of kids with special needs in the D.C. area. It's a starting point for your family - a list of ideas and resources, everything from respite care to camps, that is out there for you.
