Raising a child with special needs comes with a set of challenges for which most parents are not prepared. One of the best ways to overcome these difficulties is to learn from other families who are successful in their journey of raising a child with special needs. That’s why in this episode, Dr. Meg sits down with Chris and Melissa Hogan to talk about raising their special needs son, Case. Melissa runs a non-profit called Project Alive (projectalive.org) whose mission is to cure Hunter Syndrome, and Chris is the host of the Retire Inspired podcast, best-selling author, and Ramsey Personality (chrishogan360.com). Also in this episode Dr. Meg gives you her three points to ponder to begin using right away and answers a question from a mom struggling to get her toddler to eat at mealtime.
