Special Needs Teens Rise to Challenges

My most recent article published in Raising Teens Magazine, October 2012.

I am sharing my most recent article, published in Raising Teens Magazine , in the October 2012 issue.In this article, I offer tips and strategies on how to challenge your adolescent, even if she or he has special needs.

Too often, parents find themselves 'doing a lot' for their teen because of a disability or area of weakness. However, you may be doing a disservice to your teen who is ready to be held to the higher standards that you have set for your other children, younger and older.  

You will see that you will be pleasantly surprised as a parent when you hold your teen with special needs to age-appropriate (or modified) but higher standards for behavior, social skills, academics, and responsibilities around your home.

Read on and let me know what you think! http://www.njfamily.com/NJ-Family/November-2012/Special-Needs-Teens-Rise-to-Challenges/
