Family and Parenting
Each family is a unique fiber in the fabric of society. All children, including children with disabilities, have an innate desire to learn new skills and connect with others. First, their most basic needs must be met: health, safety, and love.
Parents can approach the development of their child through being protective, personal, progressive, positive, playful and purposeful. DCMP media can help with the basics and provide additional information necessary for children with disabilities. Parents who have children who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, and deaf-blind can register for free DCMP membership and have full access to thousands of accessible educational videos, including those about parenting and family life.
DCMP has resources to help you and your child learn about family and parenting and offers this flyer to get your family off to a good start.
