It’s really important to get your child’s professionals to buy into your story. To get them to buy into your family story and that of your child. Why?
It’s having a team around you that helps to keep you going and helps you to achieve the things you need to to meet your child’s needs. You are the leader of the team, the CEO of your Special Needs Family and no-one else in this world is going to be as passionate about your child as you are but you can get people on board to support you.
We all know the medical teams and educational staff are mostly stretched beyond capacity to do their jobs effectively and they carry a lot of stress and pressure around with them. In order to cut through the noise, you need to stand out. I don’t mean, stand out for being “the difficult parent”, I mean stand out for being the amazing parent that you are. Stand out and be memorable because of your amazing child.
