Supporting our children's independence as they turn into adults is a challenge for most parents. It is even harder when your child has special needs or a disability. We want to let go, to let them take on as much adult responsibilities as they can handle but the their timing will be different and for some, will never reach full independence.

This is a nice essay which captures the need to accept your child as an independent adult while still offering love and support. I don't agree with everything the author says but it is thought provoking.
