Parent Psychological Adjustment
Parents of children receiving early intervention are also facing many changes. Overwhelming worry, anxiety, guilt or loss are some of the inevitable emotions that many parents may feel during this process. Early intervention is a long and continuous road. During psychological consultations, the psychologist and the parents can together establish reasonable goals for treatment and education. In addition, the psychologist can help parents learn to take care of their mind and body and how to be gentle yet firm in their parenting, thus allowing the whole family to continue with treatment and education in a steady and practical way.
