Parenting Special Needs Children

Many parents say raising a child is a joyful experience. But as most moms and dads will admit, parenting can sometimes be challenging, tiring, and frustrating. And what if your child has a physical, emotional or developmental disability? Dr Kara Ayers, Advocacy and Dissemination coordinator for the UC University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Tim Vogt, executive director of Starfire, and Starfire Board Member Kathleen Cail look at how parents of special needs children take care of them, themselves, and their families.
