Profile Information

This is why I am passionate about special needs.
I am the mother and grandmother of children with Tourette S. and Sensory Processing Disorders. I am a retired teacher with 30 yrs in elementary schools; therefore, special needs children have been in my personal and professional life. Now I have a Special Needs blog: and work with my daugher, Pierrette with her business Kid Companions Chewelry

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.
The most valuable piece of advice I would offer to others regarding special needs.

What I hope to gain from My Special Needs Network
I hope I can share my experience in working with special needs children and also learn from other parents.

The program your grandchild is in sounds wonderful.  I have been a Director for four years now and it is my first Director position.

Hi Lorna!  I hope this message finds you well.  I teach 3- and 4-year-olds at a play-based, emergent curriculum, Jewish preschool.  I also happen to be the Director of the program.  Have a great day!
