This film will be interesting to parents raising children with disabilities, specialists working with families of children with disabilities, as well as to the  general  audience. In the film “Be a Special Parent,” parents talk about their children with disabilities, about their education, upbringing, the prospects of socialisation, how their lives changed with the advent of a special needs child and how not to lose themselves in difficult life realities, as well as much more.

“We didn’t want to talk only about parents of children with disabilities, but about parenthood in general, about understanding our roles as  parents,” says Andrei Afonin.
