What to Know About Parenting a Child with Special Needs?


Fostering children with special needs


In this video Rita Soronen of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption discusses what parents-to-be should expect and prepare for when fostering a child that has special needs.

Parenting a child with special needs can be challenging but also rewarding. It's important to stay closely connected to the child's social worker. They have a wealth of information not only about the child's journey prior to landing in the foster care home but the kinds of resources that are available for the family. The social worker will make sure that the family is armed with all of the resources that they may need for parenting this child.
