Lately the following "status" on facebook has made its rounds in honor of special education week...
This is so very true.... and it was actually that facebook status I first thought of when I received an email today asking me if I wanted to contribute to an article with the title;
What do you want people to know about raising a child with a disability?
The author is looking to write an article for a parenting magazine:
I am writing an article about parenting a child with a disability. It can be funny, informative, or a form of venting. All I need is a single phrase, a few sentences at most. If I see common themes being repeated, I'll know it's important to include it! It will probably be in a "top ten" format, and I am hoping to keep it simple!
