Supporting Parents at the Time of Their Child’s Disability Diagnosis and Beyond: Practical Strategies for Healthcare Providers
Communicating a child’s disability diagnosis to a parent can be stressful for care providers, as the diagnosis can have a profound impact on both child and parent health outcomes. Health care providers who adapt evidence-supported diagnosis delivery protocols and culturally responsive care can better support parents at the time of their child’s initial disability diagnosis.
