Here's the latest article from the Children with Special Needs site at BellaOnline.com.

Children of Divorce - Childhood Disabilities
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art177409.asp
Issues in families where parents are divorced or separated can be slightly more complicated when one of the 'children of divorce' has a disability or developmental delay. The non-custodial parent and extended family may protect their ongoing relationships, may favor mainstream siblings, or terminate all relationships.
Children of divorce are by definition children of no longer married couples. These children were born from romance, passion, love and commitment in the same percentage as sons and daughters of still-married couples. It is a cruelty we impose upon the innocent to call them 'children of divorce' because that term erases their history and defines them according to their loss in status in the community and security in their family.
Many estranged relationships are salvaged when children reach adulthood and some that were close during childhood may fray during adolescence or disappear if a parent or child relocates, or when a parent remarries. Helping build resilience in our children benefits everyone in the family during and after divorce.
