The dark underbelly of the special needs community is the dislike of the label of “special needs” itself. That, combined with the fact that many able-bodied people are writing and speaking for disabled people (both by professionals and caregivers), can be a recipe for disaster.
Losing the Affordable Care Act would be devastating. Without it, my daughter would most likely be dead.
For Christmas, Namine received a little microphone and stand. The stand was perfect for us to use in a little homemade physical therapy.
Namine told me about a decision she made about her upcoming recital.
When Jessica and I were collecting pictures for our talk at Marquette, we had the opportunity to compare a picture of Namine standing in the bathroom with pretty much the same thing from back in 2014.
Namine had a dental checkup today. The time for her jaw expansion draws ever closer, but not as close as we thought.
After being out for a few weeks, Namine enjoyed coming back to basketball practice.
We went on a field trip with Namine’s school to see a play.
This afternoon Jessica, Namine, and I gave a presentation to an engineering class at Marquette University.
