I have two special needs children. My 16 year old son has Autism, Tourettes, and type 1 diabetes. My 2 1/2 year old son has Down Syndrome and has successfully beaten AML Leukemia a year ago. I also have an 11 year old step daughter that lives with us (her mother is not around). She has ADD.
Skills: these are areas where I have expertise and might be able to help others.
Needs: these are areas where I have questions and will be looking to learn from others.
BODY WORKS, COMMUNICATION, FINE MOTOR, RESOURCES, SENSORY SOLUTIONS, VISUAL MOTOR
The most valuable piece of advice I would offer to others regarding special needs.
Find a calming outlet for yourself sometimes. You have to remember to tend to your own needs as much as your child(ren).
What I hope to gain from My Special Needs Network
Resources, knowledge, friendships
