The purpose of this thesis is to show that establishing a work-life balance for its employees, especially those with special needs children, is essential to the health and production of a company. This thesis explores this topic by addressing hardships faced by parents of special needs children, examining programs available to help employees attain balance between work and life, and by examining what different people need at different stages of their lives. This work will hopefully raise awareness and inspire employees with special needs children to look at their specific hardships and stage in life to understand what type of work-life balance programs they would need a company to provide. In terms of the employers, by understanding what extra work-life balance programs parents of special needs children need, they will know how to get maximum productivity from their employee.
