The Powerful Effect of Respectful Parenting for Children With Special Needs (Case Studies from Sandra Hallman)
The following blog was a guest post I had the honor of writing on www.janetlansbury.com.
I’m often asked by parents of children with special needs whether respectful care practices, which are based on trust in our children as competent whole people at birth, can possibly work for them. And if so, how? Based on the feedback I have received from parents and professionals in the field, the answer is a resounding “yes!” But since my own work with families has not included many of these children, I don’t have experiences and details to share firsthand. Enter Sandra Hallman, a child development specialist and early intervention therapist who recently contacted me by email.
