Here's the latest article from the Children with Special Needs site at BellaOnline.com.

A History of Early Intervention and Advocacy
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art174676.asp
The first early intervention programs for children with developmental disabilities began as preschool studies of children with Down syndrome. Films, photos and videos showing their potential and accomplishments raised professional and public awareness, like today's advocates using social media.

Thank you for encouraging and supporting children with special needs, their siblings, and all our families within your own community. Getting through the tough times and enjoying the great moments of our children's lives is something we have in common with one another and with all parents. You may be inspiring or comforting others without realizing how important you are to your friends and neighbors. Hang in there!

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message.

Don't hesitate to pass this newsletter along to family and friends - I volunteer my time and energy to pay forward all the help I have had and will have from friends and advocates we meet along the way. So far, so good!
