SELF CARE (THE PHOENIX)

As a special needs parent or caretaker, it can be easy to prioritize the needs of your loved one over your own. However, it's crucial to remember that taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of your special needs child or family member. Self-care not only helps you maintain your physical and mental health, but it also ensures that you have the energy and emotional stability to continue providing the best care for your loved one. 

EAA has partnered with The Phoenix to help parents, caretakers and individuals with autism practice self-care.
