Holiday Guide

I just received this in my e-mail today from CLC Network:

"Children who experience and live with disabilities along with their families often struggle with the many changes in routine due to the excitement and celebrations that surround Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year." So true! The link below will take you to an article by Barbara Newman on putting together a holiday plan to help these children receive the support they need to have a successful holiday season. Barb is a friend of mine and a wonderful educator in the field of special education. She has some great ideas here and also has given permission for you to reproduce and share this article with anyone who may benefit from the information.


Treatment Tuesday

I've been gone for a bit. First I was sick, then my kids got sick. Ugh! Ready for everyone to be healthy and happy again.

Maria has her treatment today so that should help her be a little stronger. Jon Felipe has a bad cold. Cold medicine seems to hype him up and trigger behavior issues so that's a bad idea. It also makes him not sleep and not sleeping is a really bad idea. Being sick triggers seizures. Yep, really need everyone to be healthy.

In the midst of all this, Colin had a birthday. He and I both had to work the evening of his birthday, so we postponed his celebration until the end of the week when everyone would be home. Dwight made a yummy dinner with some help from Maria and we followed up with a chocolate tres leches cake. It was a nice evening.
