This and That
Last week, Jennifer approached me to tell me things that Carly, a girl from her class, was doing after school, then she would take my face in her hands to say "And not me!"
Jenn was clearly feeling left out.
At first I would comment that Carly was just a busy girl... Then I asked if Carly was doing this with her family.... Finally Jenn made me understand that there was an afterschool club that she wanted to belong to.
So we asked and Jenn is now taking part....
Excellent bit of self-advocacy, wouldn't you say?
And now for some interesting links:
This post by Stephen Drake about Writers Logjam talks about an NVLD issue that my son runs into too... As do I sometimes.
I am the mother of three, wife of one. I am a Partners in Policymaking graduate and a committed disability advocate. I want to catch up on my scrapbooking, learn more about art-journaling, get my house in order, read all the books I have set aside to read and change the world--not necessarily in that order. The opinions in this blog are my own and not those of any of employers.
