Special Needs Fostering

Disabled special needs fosteringFostering a child with a disability or learning difficulty can be a very rewarding experience, it is often forgotten that children needing foster care include the disabled and special needs child. It is natural that most would-be parents looking to foster are thinking of a bright, beautiful and dare we say "normal" baby or child to care for and raise but the rewards of fostering a special needs child can be phenomenal. That said careful consideration and ensuring that both parties are 100% aware of the challenges as well as the rewards is paramount. 

Fostering a disabled or special needs child can includes children with varying medical conditions and/or physical or learning disabilities, these may include autism, hyperactivity, attention deficits, or a range of learning difficulties/disabilities including blind or deaf children.

As well as long term fostering, temporary foster parents and carers are also often required for emergency, overnight stay or even offering your protection in a place of safety, these may be short-term and sometimes include short breaks to allow a period of respite for the family members. This is often a good test for you as would be foster parents considering fostering a child with a disability or learning difficulty.

Listed below are sites and resources that offer further detail of fostering a child with a disability or special needs along with information about training, support services, help with fostering costs and a range of contacts to provide you with as much information as possible.
