Having a child with a developmental disorder can be very isolating and stressful. Taking care of yourself will help ensure that you are more easily able to help advocate for your child’s needs and available to help support their skill-building. If you find yourself struggling to cope, alert family, trusted friends, and your healthcare provider. Consider ways to get all caregivers involved in your child’s life (significant other, relatives) on the same page as consistency helps children make progress more quickly. Common issues surrounding friendships will be discussed, including friends who start avoiding you as well as friends who want to help, but do not know what you need. Tips for communicating with your other children including navigating differences in expectations as well as common playtime issues are reviewed.
