“The positive challenge facing parents of children with special needs”

Presented by Mrs. Nada Barakat Khawaja, a specialist in educating children with special needs


My Book "c'est un enfant lui aussi" is a testimony of what I and my family went through while raising a child with special needs.

Raising a child with a disability has always been viewed as a huge burden on the family. What are the psychological stages that parents go through? What is the real impact of disability on the family? Can one overcome the difficulties engendered by such a situation? If so how?

The presentation will try to answer these questions and explain what it really means to see the person before the disability.

It will include the following topics:

-Main issues raised in the above mentioned book

-Necessity of changing views towards disability

-Facing others in social settings


-Importance of expressing feelings as related to basic concepts of psychosomatic theory.
