      Understanding what your daughter or son is dealing with and what your grandchild's needs are will help you deal with your own emotions and will allow you to be a better help to the family. Attend conferences, go to doctor's appointments, ask questions, and encourage the rest of the extended family to do the same. Let Your Child Be Your Guide.   Grandchildren are royal blessings. Proverbs tells us, Children’s children are a crown to the aged. But what if your crown is not what you expected? What if your grandchild has a disability? This mini-book offers grandparents their honored place as kings and queens in their families.

    Parents alone may be unable to afford all the therapies, sensory integration equipment, books about a child’s special interest, or summer camp that a child needs. Therefore, many grandparents help their children and grandchildren financially—often at some sacrifice. 5. Treat the child as any other child, while understanding you’ll have to make some allowances. 6. Stay well informed and seek out ways to get involved, like attending seminars and joining support groups. 7. Be an advocate for your grandchild and family. 8. Work collectively with all family members. 9. Believe your grandchild will get better.

      Raising your grandchildren is a challenge unto itself, but raising a grandchild with special needs is an additional stressor. At a recent retreat where autism experts from around the world met to discuss the key elements underpinning the cases of successful intervention, one factor kept reoccuring as a theme, and that is parental persistence. Understand it's much easier for your special needs grandchild to spend time with you on their own turf, where they feel safe and less anxious. If you live faraway, you can still be present. Depending on the specific special needs of your grandchild, you can call regularly to speak to them.
