Family Life

Being a parent is joyous and complex, whether your child is lively 8-year old, or a socially-complex 15-year old. Being a parent of a child, teen, or young adult with a disability combines the wonder of the parenting experience with the challenge of understanding and appreciating difference – for yourself as an individual as well as for your child. It’s about appreciating diversity, humanity, and moments of intense challenge. Shutaf family stories and articles are drawn from our collective experiences and lives, as parents, educators, caregivers, and humans, created for your enjoyment and appreciation, so that we can all work on becoming that inclusive community of the future.
