Parenting a child with a disability presents unique challenges and rewards not often addressed in mainstream parenting literature.

Bloorview Kids Rehab created BLOOM to bring together the wisdom of families – reflected in firsthand columns such as Role Model, Parent Talk and Trailblazer – and professionals in childhood disability treatment, research, real-world programs and education at Bloorview and beyond.

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

BLOOM is published twice each year and covers “top of mind” issues for parents of kids with disabilities. These are often unspoken or taboo topics that require specific “how-to” information. BLOOM focuses on issues that are common to parents of children with a variety of physical and developmental disabilities and highlights practical resources (web sites, books, videos, community programs) that support parents and their children.

BLOOM is mailed to about 4,800 parents of Ontario children who have visited Bloorview in the past year as well as professional, disability, academic, government and community partners.

Other parents and professionals who wish to subscribe can contact us.

BLOOM relies on an editorial committee of parents and professionals to brainstorm story ideas, network with families and disability organizations and generate feedback. Please drop us a line with your story ideas, comments or feedback.
