Here are a few online resources I’ve found that may be of interest to some of you.
NATHHAN, or National Challenged Homeschoolers Associated Network, is a great resource. Even if you don’t homeschool, you will find some great support and information here. I have found that the greatest resource and support comes from other parents who have been there, done that, got the t-shirt. And you’ll find plenty of that at NATHHAN.
National Tourette Syndrome Association is another great resource if your child has a tic disorder. Through TSA, my son receives a mailed newsletter called “That Darn Tic” that is full of written accounts from other kids with TS. It’s been a great thing for him to read and understand that there are plenty of other kids out there with similar special needs.
Another great general resource for parents is Children’s Disabilities Information – a site that has lots of links for support groups and information. There is a list of disabilities and special needs, so you can click on the one you’re looking for.
I’m always on the lookout for more great resources, so feel free to share your favorites here!
