What’s Going On?
We’ve had a lot going on since our return from BlogHer. The #moreincommon hashtag is in use and we’ve listed several blog posts in our BlogHer wrap up post. If you have one to add, let us know by filling out the form on the bottom and we’ll add yours to the list.
Be sure to add to our list of What Do ALL Parents Want list…it’s a carry over from our More in Common theme, hoping that we’ll be able to bridge the gaps that exist within the special needs population to impact change.
We Need to Share and Talk!
We have a lot of new members and we hope to add more so be sure to share our site with your network. We’re especially interested in adults with disabilities being members. This place is for everyone; parents/caregivers, people with special needs/disabilities, family/friends, teachers/professionals…anyone who wants to share wisdom, learn and grow and impact change. This is a safe space for all who wish to share here. Here is the premise on which we started Support for Special Needs and our Community Guidelines.
