This paper looks at the challenges faced by parents and support groups of kids with special needs. The paper begins by explaining that, as well as strong and committed parents, it often helps to have a support network, perhaps a church group or social workers to help with the task. The paper also explores specific case studies of such children and shows how the parenting unit is by far the most important for the child and the most effective at providing the care needed.

From the Paper:

"The compounding of environmental and biological risk in their follow-up of infants from the neonatal intensive care nursery (NICU) who reside in extremely poor inner city neighborhoods in Chicago. They noted that many parents from these communities appeared not to believe in the value of medical care. They felt they had received poor care in the past from providers who were not responsive to their individual problems. As an apparent consequence of these attitudes, many parents of infants in the NICU had no or poor prenatal care themselves, and they demonstrated low amounts of importance placed on caring for their infants. These parents were inconsistent about bringing their infants in to scheduled NICU follow-up appointments."
