Transition Guide-Starting LifeStarting Life with Your Child with a Disability

First Steps for Families

Release Date: 2017

 

If your child has recently been diagnosed with a disability, or if you have concerns about your child’s development, you may be wondering what to do next. If you are reading this, you are already taking the first step: starting early to get help for your baby or toddler.

 

Parenting a young child with a disability or developmental delay can be challenging. Physical, emotional and financial demands can exhaust the whole family. Fortunately, you can get help through your local early intervention program, parent support groups, and nonprofit organizations. We hope you will find this guide useful as you start the navigation process through Virginia’s disability service systems.
