I am helping develop a Therapy Room for our special needs elementary students.  I teach students who are moderate to severe.  School Specialty Special Needs products are super!  Wish our district had more funds to purchase the materials we so badly need.

Hi Susan,

I don't think it is out-of-line for you to invite all therapists to get together (maybe at his next IEP?) to get on the same page. Be up front and tell them that you feel everyone is on a different page and you want the goals and therapy to be unified and in-line, asking for them to work as a team towards the ultimate goal which is to help your son! Sometimes, egos need to be left at the door and even therapists need to reminded that they are unified in one purpose-which is to help your son. Hope that helps.

I just received the whisper phone duet today.... It's pretty cool we pretend to talk on the phone together. What a nice surprise being a contest winner. Thanks so much. P.s. Nice touch with the the little personalized note. Loved it

A pea pod would be great.  My grandson loves to sleep in my overstuffed chair with lots of pillows around him.  I think he would really enjoy sleeping in that & also resting at times.  I try to ignore the times when he picks up clothes or play items & throws them.  If they arent picked up & no attention is paid he moves on to things that I can clap & encourage such as picking up the puzzle pieces & putting them back in the puzzle.   need help with speech, is 4  & not talking.
