Children with special needs
Children with autism, Down syndrome, infantile cerebral paralysis or other conditions which differ them from usual people are called children with special needs. Such children require more attention, patience, knowledge, physical and emotional strength. So often all attendance and worries fall on one of the closest relative – usually it’s mom or granny. And then the way of life of these people changes fundamentally. Their social circle and interests become considerably limited, their free time and personal interest become minimum or disappear completely. Such state of things often causes psychological problems in a family and crisis among close people.
It’s quite real to solve such situations by releasing mother from daily cares at least partially.
A babysitter for a special child – who is it?
First of all this is a person who completely understands and evaluates your situation. This person knows from real life how difficult it may be to go through another epileptic seizure or attack of aggression of an autist, how difficult it is to teach a child with Down syndrome to pronounce even the word “mom”.
