December 20 2012 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


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

Holiday Breaks and Childhood Disabilities
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art178935.asp
Parents of children with disabilities may struggle more than their mainstream peers to plan activities, schedule play dates or find childcare when school is not in session during holidays. Changes in sleep schedules and differences in daily routines can be challenging for both parents and children.

Words cannot express the sympathy and grief we feel for the families and children involved in the terrible events at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut last Friday, December 14, 2012. I wish all those affected comfort and peace in the coming months and years.
