Myths about parenting children with special needs

This Is My Child logoThe aim of our This Is My Child campaign is good old-fashioned consciousness-raising about what it's like to be the parent of a child with special needs.

It also aims to debunk unhelpful - and incorrect - assumptions about how children with special needs behave - and suggests how we can all challenge those assumptions to help alleviate the stress this places on parents.

With our campaign partners, Every Disabled Child Matters, Contact A Family and Mencap, and with help from the National Autistic Society, we've pulled together six common myths about children with special needs.
