Summary:

The National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs found that 14.6 million children (ages 0 to 17) in the United States (19.8%) have special healthcare needs. Caring for a child with a disability or chronic health condition is often a lifelong experience, and some have more than one child with a disability. Parents of children with chronic conditions face unique systemic barriers to caregiving. This activity will discuss some of the challenges faced by families and identify ways in which healthcare professionals may help empower families to adapt and potentially thrive. 

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to familiarize healthcare providers with parental reactions to having a child with special healthcare needs and interventions to support those parents. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the concepts of chronic sorrow, transformed parenting, and normalization associated with parenting a child with special healthcare needs
  • Identify children’s special healthcare needs and the experiences of family caregivers
  • State two types of support a clinician can provide to parents of children with special healthcare needs
