Why were there no posts in this part of the forum?
« on: Aug 21, 2013 @ 02:08 AM »
I cannot be the only mommy whose children could fall under the category of "Special Needs." Why is this a silent forum? Does no one discuss their special needs children on their blogs? I feel like we all should be out there discussing the rise and fall from the moment of concern/discover through diagnosis, treatment, and acceptance. I have a two year old who may have Williams Syndrome but at least has dealt with developmental delay and is currently in a special needs preschool to help with psychosocial and cognitive delays. My six month as was just evaluated yesterday for possible developmental delay, and later this week we'll conference on whether he, too, will need to join big sis at the facility. My six year old has unfortunately been a victim of sexual abuse, but beyond that may well have some form of high-functioning autism--we're still in the discovery phase with her counseling team. She attends a regular elementary school, but they have her in a classroom which utilizes iPads. She's excited about that. She hyper focuses on electronics.

Thanks for being the first brave mom to post here! This is a newer board recently added after a couple requests. Now that you've posted, hopefully the seal has been broken and the activity should pick up.

I have 14 children (five adopted, 9 by birth). Two of my adopted children were drug and alcohol exposed and have have learning and behavioral issues. My 12 year old (bio) has unilateral hearing loss and wears a hearing aid.  My three year old was born with a double aortic arch and is tube fed.

I'm not sure. I'm new to blogging and my child is newly diagnosed. One thing I have learned is that not everyone is open to discussing or hearing or reading about the ups and downs of parenting a special needs child.

Odd that parents might be hesitant about posting about there kids. My video about my sons Cystic Fibrosis on YouTube has the most views of all of them. So obviously people are needing answers about it.
