Parenting a child with a disability presents unique challenges and rewards you don’t typically read about in mainstream parenting media.

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital created BLOOM (blog, e-letter and A Family Like Mine video series) to bring together the wisdom of families and professionals in clinical care, research and education. We also cover mainstream disability news and opinion pieces.

The name BLOOM conveys our belief that every child blooms in his or her own unique way.

At BLOOM we celebrate difference.

Our blog unites parents of children with disabilities and clinicians in 146 countries in an international community of support.
