Abstract

What types of financial hardships arise from having a child under the age of 18 with a disability? In this paper I will review literature pertaining to this topic and describe in detail the research which I conducted. I examined the financial strains put on families, how and if insurance companies help or hurt situations, families need for assistance, satisfaction with services (occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy), and the overall financial hardships endured by families of children with diagnosed disabilities.
