Care Plan


First steps to consider

  • Asking friends and family for help can give you time to relax, take care of your physical and mental health, and connect with your partner.
  • Finding ways to meet other parents of children with a disability can help you feel less isolated and frustrated.

When you may need a provider

  • If you’re dealing with extreme stress, serious relationship problems, symptoms of depression or anxiety, or are struggling to accept your child’s disability, consider seeing a mental health provider.
  • A couples therapist can help you and your spouse identify and work through challenges.
  • Other professional supports include home health care, respite care, and working with a special education advocate.
