July 13 2011 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


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

Welcome to Holland - Today and Yesterday
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art172314.asp
The wonderful essay written by Emily Perl Kingsley has been included in many wonderful anthologies and is often included in New Parent Packets for parents and professionals sharing a newborn or prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. Many believe that it is as relevant today as the day it was written.

An interesting discussion is underway on the Down-syn list about what "Welcome to Holland" meant or means to them at http://tinyurl.com/WtHprspctvs

To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum:

I would enjoy reading your comments there about people and stories; essays and other literature that meant something to you when your child was diagnosed.
