Special Needs Children

A Risk Assessment Model for Developing Parenting Plans

Family courts have seen a dramatic rise in children diagnosed with various types of neurodevelopmental, psychiatric and medical syndromes. Commonly recommended developmentally-based parenting plans may be inappropriate with many special needs children; therefore, family court professionals face complex challenges in crafting appropriate parenting plans. This webinar will focus on three of the most frequently encountered types of childhood conditions: autistic spectrum disorders, ADHD, and depressive disorders. Presented will be a systematic approach to analyzing the risk and protective factors that should inform parenting plan arrangements with this varied population.
