Do you have a child with special needs? Does your family think it's a good idea to tell you what you're doing wrong?
My son is four years old and has been fighting a rare allergic inflammatory disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis. Yeah, I still can't say it. Although he has had this from birth, we didn't recieve a diagnosis until Hugh was 16 months old when they found a penny sized ulcer inside his tiny tummy. One of the largest ulcers ever seen in a child that small. That…Continue

I am a chatter box. I have a lot of conversations, in my travels through my daily day. I have, at times, heard a lot of misinformation about learning disabilities. So I'm going to give every one some super BASIC info on learning disabilities. Knowledge is power man. That way you don't look like a ding dong when you are stating something at a wine and cheese party.

Today has definitely been a rough day. It’s days like this that really make me sit down and wonder if I’m doing the right things, saying the right things, and getting her the help she needs.
Our 7 year old daughter, Veronica, is currently in a Partial Hospitalization Program at a local psychiatric facility. She was hospitalized about a month ago due to a full psychotic break, which was a first for her. Prior to that we were wondering if she was on the autism spectrum, but after the…Continue

Waking up in a hotel room this morning, an out of routine place, Samuel started early. His constant sounds demanding cereal won’t let us rest. Ralph distracted him with a couple of stroller rides but we finally pulled out the goods, much to Samuel’s delight. Our routine time for cereal snacks is between 3 – 5pm. Not today, 10am.…Continue

Soon after Samuel was born, I remember seeing a friend’s baby at the mall. I leaned over to get a closer look at the little girl. She was sleeping soundly in the stroller.
I marveled not at the color of her hair or her cute outfit but at how long her arms and legs were and how her breathing was calm and in perfect rhythm. I was comparing her to Samuel whose chest could be clearly seen rising and falling and occasionally out of sync. This was one of the first signs my journey would be…Continue

You're at a party. Not a children's birthday party (for a change) but a party with only grownups. Some of the guests are talking about politics, others are talking about their new hobbies or careers and still others are discussing literature. You find yourself chatting with a person who has lived an extraordinary life. As they continue talking you learn how they have had success at sports, in the business world and in their family life.…Continue

Since Lilly came home from the hospital we have been working on one goal or another. Since having A-man I have learned most babies things just happen. Yes, you nurture them but most of them will hit the milestones with very little effort.
Well with A-man it seems that way.
There's no short term developmental goals in the 5 developing areas of a child

You know that list of "Children's Book Titles You'll Never See?"
Well, here are some of our first thoughts on what we should call our blog:

"How to Deal with School Refusal -- Wine, Xanax and ... Oh wait, you meant the…Continue

It is magnificent to take action now to know you are special and take action now to improve your physical health. If you talk to most people they will tell you that given a choice of good physical health or increased income, they would prefer increased physical health. After all, money can buy many good and wonderful things, but it cannot buy cures to incurable diseases and it cannot buy relief from chronic pain. One of the good things about physical health is that for the most cases, we…Continue

Not all children respond to the same methods of teaching, especially those with special needs. Sign language has benefits for both those with and without hearing as it is a multi-sensory language!…Continue

My son is a boy's boy, a rough and tumble kid. He likes football, plays baseball, watches racing. He doesn't hold hands with mom much anymore, and he only says "I love you" at night.
So that's why I owe a big debt of gratitude to "Wallace and Gromit."
I don't know if you've seen this British series, but my kids love it. I think it's just okay - but I'll admit, it's growing on me.
There are "Wallace and Gromit" movies and "Wallace and Gromit" shorts, and they all revolve…Continue

For some time, Bunny has been experiencing a reoccurring nightmare. She dreams monsters come in our house and eat our entire family, except for her. She is left alone with no parents, no home, and no place to go.

One of the topics I am asked about often is social skills. The importance of social learning for all children, but especially children with hidden challenges & special needs cannot be emphasized enough.
In many of my adaptive yoga programs I've observed not only the 'bringing together' of mind and body, but also the bringing together of friendships, some unlikely on the surface at first, but then watching them growing spontaneously out of small groups sessions,…Continue
