Caring for a child with a disability
Each child with a disability is unique and has individual needs. They will usually require additional care, attention and supervision, dependent on the nature of the disability. Examples include dispensing medication, tube-feeding and greater assistance with personal care, like dressing and toileting. Children with disabilities are likely to have delayed development at least in some areas; however, as with any other child, it is important to assist them to develop new skills and help them reach their maximum potential.
