    Thank you for a great article. As a parent of a child with special needs, I am learning every day about so much of what was touched on in this article. My son, with expressive and receptive language delays, asked last week to be part of the small group of students who makes the announcements over the loudspeaker to the 350 kids in his school. I was scared and nervous and his teacher was too….he has done it for three days now and has become a role model for his peers. Without the gift of inclusion he would not have had this dream and his peers would not have had the experience either. He continues to amaze us all! It is not his disability which defines his growth…it is the attitudes of those around him.

    As always Anne, I am very touched personaly from your writings! My education on all these diversities comes to me from many places in my ongoing search to learn and know more. I am very much more motivated each time I read your blogs. The blogs really touch all of us in the real world dealing with the reality of what living with a disability is truely like. Either for us as an individual with the actual disabilty factor or from a family or friend perspective dealing with agencies in helping someone else get through all the hoops. I look forward to learning more about KASA and will be passing this blog on to my friends and family.
