Parents need the option to continue to be caregivers for their disabled children. Parents know their children's needs far more than any provider outside the home would. We are with our child day after day, season after season, year after year. A person comes to know someone quite well when they're with them and caring for them that much. Caring for a child or children with a significant disability (cognitive, physical, or a combination of both) day in and day out, season after season, year after year is a HUGE job. Because of the significant amount of time devoted to caring for their child, parents know their children's needs far more than any provider outside the home would. They do not need to undergo time-consuming training or work for an agency. Imposing needless guidelines on parents so they can continue to care for their own child in home is ludicrous, especially when other caretakers are often not knowledgeable, not available, or unreliable. Please don't make it difficult or impossible for parents to remain caregivers for their disabled children.
