Different populations have certain special needs that warrant them special attention in the society. For example some newborns are born with congenital anomalies and life threatening illnesses like jaundice and cardiovascular disease. Congenital anomalies include cerebral palsy and Down’s syndrome. Down’s syndrome manifests with a poor muscle tone, short neck, flat facial organs and low-set ears. Cerebral palsy presents with poor muscle tone, convulsions, sensory defects and spacity of muscles. Cerebral palsy can be managed by use of physiotherapy to aid in ambulation of limbs, botulinum medications and surgical intervention.
The common special needs disorders that face young children are developmental and intellectual disorders (Traisman, 2015). Some common disorders are autism spectrum disorder and congenital heart diseases. The goal of management in autism disorders is to improve functioning, socialization and reduce maladaptive behavior (Jansen, 2017). It is best to care for these patients at their home to maintain familiarity with the environment.
Parents who have children with special needs should be aware of the availability of home care services from which they can seek assistance.
