Over the years, I have learned a few tricks that helped to be a better special needs parent. One of the most important things I have picked up on is the ability to read the subtle cues.
For example, I’m able to tell the difference between Elliott just not feeling well and actually being sick.
Elliott never takes a nap and I mean never. So at 3pm in the afternoon, when Elliott is passed out on the couch, I know he truly isn’t feeling well and is sick.
Sometimes, as special needs parents, we have to rely on our instincts more than most. At times, it’s all we have to go on, especially if your child can’t communicate what is going on or how they are feeling.
