What You Need to Know About Raising a Child With a Birth Injury

Has your child suffered a birth injury? Raising a child with a disability involves more than paying for therapy or providing special resources to meet your child's needs. It is about giving your son or daughter the best chance at having as normal a life as possible.

The resources on this website are intended to help parents, caregivers and family members cope with birth injuries. It is an essential tool that can help you with some of the financial and emotional challenges you will surely face. Learn more by clicking on the links below:

It is not enough to say that birth injuries can cause lifelong struggles for the sufferer. Birth injuries affect the entire family in some way, whether that is adapting to living with a child who needs 24-hour care or adjusting budgets to pay for therapy and other medical costs. Siblings, too, must learn how to live with a sister or brother who is "different" and gets special attention.

Attending birth injury support groups can give you a place to share your experiences with others and learn from them. Support groups can provide you with knowledge and resources to help enrich your child's and your family's life. There are also helpful rehabilitative resources available on this site, including information on special education, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy.

See the section on understanding the effects of birth injury on the family.
