ParentMap October 2015 Issue | Explore our past issues



 To the devoted parents navigating challenges with special needs children and to the caregivers working to improve the lives of others — this one's for you. 

There is a golden thread magically woven through our October special needs issue. It’s not the words that describe myriad institutions, research advancements or advocacy for children and families with special needs. The magic is the humans: their hearts, vision and action.

Don't miss our Q&A with the founder of Ladybug House, a freestanding, community-based palliative-care home in Seattle to offer respite to children with life-limiting illnesses. Learn how Seattle's PlayGarden provides a place where kids of all abilities can explore, take risks, play and be creative and explore, and why self-care is vital role for parents who are raising a special needs child.
