hello! I have a 9 month old ds with down syndrom and a 4yo dd who has developmental delays-speech, fine and gross motor skills. she attends a montessori and a developmental preschool along with speech and ot. I struggle with the services and what will be up against when she is school age (she can attend montessori for kindergarten) i always assumed my kids would nevr do any traditional educational stuff . it is strange how folks don't want to be in "the box" when they can be but when they can't fit into"the box" they are expected to. sometimes i feel so mixed up about my own personal beliefs and what is best for my children and how much i am being brainwashed. i just trudge along and make choices everyday that i believe are the best at that time. anyway welcome to everyone and I am glad to be a part of sucha fantastic group of amazing parents!
