It is really important to have an inclusive society. This ensures the well-being of an individual with a developmental disability as well as the well-being of their family.

Being a parent or a caregiver of a child with a disability comes with multiple and unique responsibilities. Playing the role of a special parent and caring for your family is important. But do not forget to take care of yourself in the process too. 

As parents of children with disabilities proactively seek information and support for their children, they may discover some limitations. These limitations reinforce a sense of isolation or exclusion and increase emotions such as grief or anger. As a result of these and other factors, parents seeking support for their special needs children have special needs of their own when it comes to self-care.

To ensure an inclusive society for a child with a developmental disability it is important that the community shares the social responsibility. One should not hesitate to seek help from family members or society to avoid burnout.
