Sunday Digest 1

On Sundays I'm going to be posting a digest of links that I've come across that seem important to the task of parenting special needs children, some will be from a faith perspective and some will simply be practical or "in the news" types of posts...this is of course by no means comprehensive. For time purposes alone I'll probably limit it to five cool links (do you really have time to read more than that?). Also I should note that these are not extensively vetted - as with anything you find on the internet read and enfold into your world view with caution! :-)

Friendship Circle – pairing special needs children with teenage volunteers – supports special needs children with companionship, supports parents with respite. I am always looking for groups that encourage typical and special needs friendships.

Financial planning for parents of special needs children. Something I've thought about but not done much about...put that on the long to do list!

Following up on a conversation I had with a friend of mine...two blog posts with alternate points of view:
Parents venting at lack of progress in finding a cause, and or a cure for autism.
A parent with autism with his own view of the cause(s) of autism.

Last but not least, if you're feeling the least bit worn down by your role as a special needs mom, this piece written especially for mother’s day will melt your heart.
