Disciplining the Special-Needs Child

2 Comments

“Disciplining a child who is “differently-abled” is likely to bring out the best and the worst in a parent. Parents try to help a child make up for what’s missing by increasing their love and attention, yet children with special needs trigger special frustrations in parents. Be prepared to run out of patience.” – Dr. Sears

  1. The Positive Discipline series of books, CD’s, DVD’s, workshops, and more, has been my absolute favorite parenting teaching. Lots of tools without having to resort to punishment. And, they also have a book just for parenting kids with special needs (http://store.positivediscipline.com/special-needs.html). I have at least 4 of their books, and every one is filled with gold.

    • I forgot to add, my son was diagnosed with SPD at 2, and recently diagnosed with ADHD, learning disabilities, and pervasive anxiety. Positive Discipline has been excellent for him and for our family.
