For the next month, I’ll trial this round-up of highlights from special needs blogs. If it proves popular, I will continue and if not then I’ll proceed as I have been (posting endlessly about May’s superior power of cuteness).
Email email@example.com with suggestions for next week!
1. It’s Easter Weekend so head to It’s Fun for All at Jonathan’s Bookshelf for some accessible Easter activities. Once you are done reading about their fun fishing game be sure to click through to read about the special easter egg hunt. Truly ingenious idea.
2. 10 Freedoms Every Special Needs Child Should Have on Friendship Circle was inspired by the Jewish Passover holiday but it is a must-read for all parents of children with special needs. How about #3 Freedom from appointments: Schedule one day without medical or therapy appointments. No insurance, medical or therapy-related phone calls, either. Three cheers to that!
3. Take your special needs kiddie and GET OUT. That’s always been my advice. Let’s Go Out: 5 PrAACtical ideas by PrAACtical ACC shows how you can use a walk outdoors to explore language as well as nature.
4. For those of you living in the UK – or just interested in how special needs are met on the other side of the pond – Special Needs Jungle featured a guest post from Steph’s Two Girls. Steph Curtis was asked to be part of the Pathfinder Pilot of the governments new SEN reforms and gives a behind-the-scenes post to what the rest of the country will be shortly experiencing.
5. Finally a personal one for me this week. To celebrate his birthday, my father has thoughtfully decided to take all the grandkids (and their parents) on a Disney cruise. But, how do I begin to prepare for sailing with May? Cruising with special needs children by Glad to be your dad is the first post I’ve come across that is specific to Disney cruising.
