How can we support families with special needs?
Join Chris and Tobin in a special conversation on how to support families with special needs. As part of the Diverse Families series, they are joined by Donna Crose, Tobin’s mom, and mother of a daughter with Down syndrome.
Donna shares the challenges of discovering a diagnosis like Down syndrome and the challenges of raising teenagers while caring for a sibling with special needs. Donna and Tobin also offer insight into some of the challenges that teens with special needs face and how to support them as they grow into adulthood.
Listen to the end for ways to support parents and siblings of kids with special needs, too.
