Parents raising children with special needs experience significant adversities, despite efforts by providers and agencies to alleviate them. Rates of anxiety and depression among mothers of special needs children are two to three times those found in caretakers of typically developing youths (Blum, 2015; Tint & Weiss, 2016). A substantial number of parents must cut back on work to fulfill responsibilities, inflicting a financial toll (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, 2013). The situation is particularly dire for parents with low incomes. When such families lack strong social supports and financial stability, only one in 100 report a good quality of life (McConnell, Savage, & Breitkreuz, 2014). Although the field has tried to address these problems by offering an array of services, sometimes professional efforts inadvertently inflict hardship along with help.
