    Loved this episode so much! One thing I would add to the part about parents who worry they are not the professional and so can’t serve their child with special needs as well as the professional can, is this: a professional has a set of skills/tools/knowledge that are only of use once they get to know the child and what the child needs. So while a parent comes to the table with maybe less professional training, what they do have is a keen sense of who they’re child is and what they need. So both parties (the parent or the professional) come to the child with only part of what they need to help him or her and the other part can be added. I don’t have a child with special needs, but I did work at a preschool for children with special needs and I observed that the best OTs or PTs or SLPs were the ones that cared about a child and got to know them as an individual. Just wanted to encourage parents who doubt their abilities to know that they have a huge benefit as their child’s educator soley by being the person in the world who loves and cares for that child most.
