Thanks Sue. Our family is fairly new with disabilities, thank goodness. The process of going through various diagnoses for our 21 mth old, both physical and cognitive/social has been an eye-opener. Some days are a bit painful, and it's hard to be objective and unemotional. Those are probably the days I should lurk, rather than post. This forum has been a wealth of information for me. I lurked for the longest time to try to be more helpful when I subbed in special ed classrooms. I never envisioned how helpful this forum would be on a personal level for our family as well. Kudos and hugs to you and Cheshire!
