In the state of Texas, child support is paid until the child reaches the age of 18, unless the child has special needs. Special needs include physical and mental impairments.

Children with disabilities require special attention. As a result, an IMH visitor can provide tools and resources to the parents for their child. This is essential to better serve their special needs.

Special needs child In general terms a special needs child is one who has some type of physical or mental/emotional disability. The specific definition of "special needs" varies from state to state. It may be that the child has special medical issues, mental health issues, abuse history, learning disabilities, or is just an older child or of a minority race. A SPECIAL NEEDS child is a child that for various reasons doesn't fit the "NORM". They may need help in any area of daily living skills. Some may be slightly delayed in dressing themselves, while others are total care, and need help in all aspects of daily skills. In days past, these kids were called "retarded", "deformed", "handicapped","slow", "disabled" etc... "Special Needs" covers all and seems more polite. Adoption related: In (PA), any child in the foster care system over 4 years old is considered special needs. The term is extremely broad, and can really mean: "Any child but a perfectly healthy, white infant" ... the "in demand" children for adoption. ... a parent of two adopted "special needs" children (healthy children adopted as teens) Special needs just means that the child in question has special/or additional needs. I'm short sighted and need glasses or contacts in order to see as clearly as someone with 20-20 vision. This is a special need. Some children may need extra care when learning or a hearing aid or a speach box which are all special/additional needs.

No it is not contagious. It is a serious mental health condition that needs to be treated with medication by a mental health professional.

A psychiatrist of mental health is a professional trained doctor to help you with your mental needs, like counseling and prescribing medications if needed.

Only a mental health professional and the courts can commit a person to a mental health institution. If you feel that your spouse needs to be committed the best thing to do is to make them an appointment with a mental health professional.

Mental health deals with psychology. This science isnt perfect but it can help understand the mind. humans have physical and mental/emotional needs. Some mental needs are to feel loved, to belong, and to feel like you have a purpose. Family fills the need to be loved. The need to be belong usually is filled by those around you peers/coworkers etc. Religion gives you purpose. If these needs are filled you should have good mental health.

A child with special need can find help with their education be hiring a "Learning Assistant". Other methods can include attending a "Special Needs" school.

All children are normal. What you refer as a special child, I assume you mean special needs. Special needs children are normal children who have specific needs that need to be catered to in order to learn as a general ed. child. They may need things to be broken down for them or more repetition, or maybe even a slower pace.

When a person seeks mental health counseling, there is no set procedure. Each mental health professional has their own way of proceeding to help individuals who seek help. The first step would be an assessment of needs.

the best one peach care because they pay for half of your child medical issues

Why not? It's still your child. Who has the child the father with mental problems or the custodial parent? Still if the father has mental problem and he fathered a child...yes he does have to pay child support. Was the father with mental problems receiving some type of disability for his mental problems? If so he is still responsible for paying child support. Does the father have custody of the child? Somebody needs to go back to court ad petition the court.

Of course! The health situation does not change the fact that there is a child that needs to be taken care of.

Yes, special needs children are the most often homeschooled. Ryan Gosling was pulled out of school because he had special needs and homeschooled... and he didn't turn out too bad huh? :)

A holistic approach to health considers all aspects of a person's needs: mental, social, spiritual, and physical.

Hopefully as long as she truly needs to be and not any longer. I suspect it depends on her health insurance, mental health coverage.

Health risk and safety are some common issues that will require special consideration for special needs individuals exercising. Being careful not to overexert special needs individuals is important.
