By Ally BarnesThursday 19 Sep 2019Hope Breakfast with Sam & Duncan

Listen: Sam and Duncan chat with special needs mum Melanie Dimmitt.

Melanie Dimmitt is a local mum who embraced special needs parenthood when her son Arlo was unexpectedly born with brain damage.

Hope Breakfast’s Sam and Duncan chatted to Melanie about her initial fears about Arlo’s future, the impact on her marriage, and how they parent two children who have very different needs. She also shared some helpful advice on what not to say to a parent of a child with a lifelong disability.

Melanie has just released her book, Special: Antidotes to the Obsessions that Come with a Child’s Disability.
