Children with Special Needs

April 7 2011 Children with Special Needs Newsletter

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

Gardening with Children
Children with developmental delays, physical disabilities, chronic health conditions or other special needs may find peace, delight and motivation in gardening where they are not being measured, evaluated or trained to do better but still take responsibility for perfectly wonderful accomplishments.

Please visit specialneedschildren.bellaonline.com to catch up on the latest articles and archives of interest to advocates and families of children who have developmental delays, physical disabilities, chronic health conditions, or other special needs.
