Parents, do you ever feel overwhelmed, overlooked or undervalued in the treatment/education process for your child? In this environment, where the child is the patient and providers are considered the experts, you can easily become “invisible”, not only as the critical partner in your child’s treatment planning, but also at a risk of increased stress yourself. By proactively managing the landscape, you can focus your energy and gain a confident sense of visibility to the whole community of professionals working with your family. This blog offers advice in that direction so that you will find the journey less lonely and more fulfilling for yourself and your child. I also welcome all members of this community working with young children, including early interventionists, behavioral specialists, speech therapists, physical and occupational therapists, teachers and administrators. Welcome!
