They say it takes a village to raise a family, but few parents these days live in such small, tight-knit communities. Fortunately, the wonders of technology can help create a virtual village where parents can turn to other parents for support , information on events, and even gently used clothes and toys.
Preparing your child for back to school should be simple. Buy them some clothes, let them pick out a cool new backpack, and the best part of all – shop for new school supplies (I loved my Trapper Keeper back in the day). But as a parent of special needs children, feelings of joy and anticipation of successes in the new school year can sometimes be replaced with anxiety. Have they regressed over the summer? How they will function socially with a new teacher and different classmates?
