    Group Homes for Children with Developmental Disabilities

    in School

    I have a child with a developmental disability.. where will they live without me?


     


    Rachael has worked with individuals with developmental disabilities for approximately 7 years. Most recently, she was an Assistant Manager for The Center for Disability Services for a group home with 7 adults. Rachael is currently a full time MSW student at SUNY Albany. 


     


    When a family has a child with a developmental disability, their future is often uncertain. Individuals with developmental disabilities are often somewhat, if not completely, dependent on their caretakers. Group homes are often an option for families to consider as their child continues to grow and parents become older and less able to care for their child.

    Raising Children with Disabilities

    in Relationships

    The joy of being a Parent is one you can not put a price tag on. Some people choose to be child-free but many look forward to carrying their own babies, rolling on the floor with them, doing the small things, big ones and everything between. Then, the reality of life sets in, in a totally different way when our angels are diagnosed with having a disability. 


     


    On this week's episode we will be speaking with two wonderful women - BEBE CLEMENT and VICTORIA LAWRENCE on RAISING CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES - both sharing their personal stories.

    How do you get a diagnosis?

    Financial/ marital pressures?
    What can family and friends do to help?

    9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
    10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
    11 Give us this day our daily bread.
    12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
    13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
