Working with special needs children (SNC) can be so exhausting and difficult, but when we see a child improve under our care and listen to the palpable excitement radiating from parents make it all worthwhile
👏It’s not sweet all the time because some children have very slow progress in improvement while parents still want magic to be done. E.g demanding that a child who has no words make sentences within 6 months.
👏I implore both parents and therapist to work together, amicably and professionally for the good of the child.
👏Many things can make a child not to improve , it mustn’t be the fault of the therapist although our attitude of empathy as caregivers and being professional, working on socially significant behaviours is important.
😰 Living in both worlds, representing both facets of life has opened my eyes to what parents and caregivers go through at their levels.
😭 Sometimes you find yourself crying while driving home, being totally drained after work due to a hyperactive child, while the parents feel the world has come to an end, with no way to remedy their aspirations for their child.
🤜🤞👌👊✊🖖🤏All am asking is for us to remember that A CHILD IS A GIFT FROM GOD. Work with each child just the way you wish others to treat yours while we, as parents realize that some of these therapists bleed for our kids to put smiles on our face.
PEACE TO US ALL
THE LIFE OF A SPECIAL NEEDS MOM IS DIFFICULT, I Tell you!
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS!
