Helping a complex child is often a long-haul project. We hear many parents say things like, “We’ve been at this for four months!” They’re incredulous, wondering why they aren’t done yet. And all we can do is gently say, “Buckle in. You may just be getting started.”

You’re going to need to get your head in the long-term game: organize yourself, pace yourself, and take care of yourself. Learn how to be your own case manager.  Find out what it means to work with your child’s school, and what’s possible when you hit walls there. Perhaps most importantly, keep tabs on how your child is doing with all this and do what you can to keep him positive and calm.

It’s a big deal. We get it. It’s your child. Let Child Decoded help.
