The onset of a disability is never a welcome event, but it can be particularly devastating in childhood. A recent profile of a 2-year-old who was diagnosed with a rare condition affecting her left arm illustrates the financial problems that can face parents trying to care for disabled children.
Parents of students with disabilities may face countless worries. For example, children with physical or cognitive disabilities often required specialized educational services. Additional assistive services may also be required so that students can receive educational instruction throughout the day. The educational attainment level may be unknown for such students, which can lead to concerns bout their future employment potential.
