Children with Special Needs

August 18 2011 Children with Special Needs Newsletter

Most families are winding up summer activities and getting back to school. Transitioning to a different school, a new grade, or unfamiliar classmates and staff may cause parents as much stress as they imagine their children will experience. Taking good care of yourself provides a great role model to your children when things go wrong, and on those rare occasions when everything goes well but just feels uncomfortable because it's new. I hope all your adventures are good ones and this year will be the best yet for your family.

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

Memorable Sundays - Childhood Congregations
Memories of positive interactions and inclusiveness within a family's faith community may be overwhelmed by a few unexpected negative comments or reactions, especially if we forget to share stories of the warmth and support offered by so many individuals.

Thank you for viewing and giving five stars to the Party Hardy Yard -
for some reason the links have been a problem. Other videos have thousands
of views and five star ratings after hundreds, so it would take a miracle for
this one to make its way to the top of the list, but every view and vote helps.
Blair Williamson (actor who has Down syndrome), his mom and dad put up a video
asking HGTV to redo their back yard. Please watch their video and write a
comment telling HGTV that redoing the yard would help LA's disability community,
the Born to Act Players, and all who will meet and celebrate there in the
future. Or just give the video 5 stars! It is a fun video to watch.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
