Have you ever looked for an answer and found more questions than answers? This is how millions of parents, who have special needs children feel every day. This paper looks at how parents are informed about support programs that are available for their child. The first part of this paper looks at what happens after you receive the information that a child has a learning disability. The second part of the paper looks at how parents are informed about the programs available to help their child. To gather information, I interviewed parents who have a child in special education. The information gathered was used to make a pamphlet. This pamphlet has a list of support services available to special needs students. The pamphlet was given to parents of special needs children.
