As Easter approaches and many people look forward to relaxing with their families, it’s timely to think about parents of children with a disability.
Children with special needs have almost four times the rate of behavioural problems of typically developing children, which is an incredible statistic when you think about what this means for thousands of Queensland families. The demands of caring for a child with a disability can be relentless and isolating, which is one of the reasons why parents report higher levels of stress and depression.
You have the power to change that in Queensland.
Please get behind the Stepping Stones Triple P Project and use your networks to let parents know they’re eligible to receive free parenting support. This support is due to end in early July, which is only three months away, so please don’t waste any time.
