Last night, a resource was shared with me that I knew had to be posted on this blog! It is full of information, so I’ll keep my commentary short.
This resource, entitled “Grand Resources: A Grandparent’s and Other Relative’s Guide to Raising Children with Disabilities” is an absolute gem. A quick peek at the first few pages and you’ll see that it covers a range of topics from understanding and obtaining special education services and benefits to procuring financial, food, and health care assistance. The question-and-answer format makes it particularly engaging and relevant, and the featured stories provide authentic glimpses into how real “grandfamilies” have overcome obstacles to support their children.
This is a must-read for grandparents and other relatives, who want honest and practical information on resources that are available in their community.
