Categories for the stories include:



Community jobs for persons with special needs

Down syndrome

Government agencies/ legal matters and special needs

Personal hygiene and special needs

Special needs education

Special needs supports

Special needs recreation activities

Speech and occupational therapy

The fun side of  Nick

Video based instruction and tech supports

Wandering and autism

If you haven’t read about how we manage to travel and what vacations look like with Nick I would highly suggest reading Blog #16- Up, Up and Away (located in July 2012 archives)

One final update for you…….The little stinker managed to pull another fire alarm at summer school last week.  That’s number 28 for those of you keeping score at home.


That’s Nick’s world…..The rest of us are just trying to keep up! See you in a couple of weeks.  Thank you for your support and please share this blog to anyone you like. 🙂

Happy Summer!
