Assistance needs for parents with developmental disabilities

A survey shows that developmental disorders are often misunderstood to be caused by “parenting caused by parents” or “lack of efforts of individuals” because of the lack of knowledge for the disorders. Also, it has been pointed out that the period from awareness of the disorders to actually consulting the support is tend to be long. Parents who raise children with developmental disabilities have several psychological support needs such as nursing stresses, anxieties, and isolation, and such supports for the individuals as well as the families are desired to be improved at the early stage.
