Mel Osmotherly

Parent Support Person

I am a parent of a teenager with disabilities, who can offer a parent perspective to the We Care program. My son was diagnosed with his condition at 3 years old and has moved through many areas of support from Early Intervention to mainstream schooling and finally to a specialist schooling setting. I can relate to many common concerns of parents raising a child with a disability, such as: finding, building relationships with and working together with therapists to support my child and my family; balancing family life with supporting the additional requirements of a child with additional needs; finding alternative ways of managing daily routines and scenarios; recognising the importance of creating a support network around the parents, family and child.
