Vacation and Special Needs Child

Vacation and Special Needs Child

Last week, Nick put together this task strip.  I think he is ready to go on our annual vacation to the Outer Banks, NC (OBX)!

OBX Task Strip

We have been going to the Outer Banks for the past 5 years. Nick loves the water.  It’s not easy getting a child with special needs to swim independently.  Nick is now 21 and has Down syndrome and autism.  Here’s some information on how he learned how to swim and why we love the beach so much@https://nickspecialneeds.wordpress.com/2012/08/13/blog-17-lifes-a-beach/

I hope that you all find your happy place and get to relax this summer.  I know Nick is ready to go!  That’s what is in my noggin this week.
