Just came across a great blog called “Friendship Circle”. http://blog.friendshipcircle.org/ Looks like the site has 9 featured bloggers, each with a different perspective regarding special needs. In only a matter of moments, I have located three “share-worthy” posts from the site, and I am sure there are many more.
One link worth seeing is “Parenting Advice from Total Strangers” dealing with reactions to children on the Autism spectrum. Another worthwhile post is “Top Five Special Needs News Stories of 2010” dealing with insurance reform for autism; iPad apps fro special needs; The “R-Word”; Special Needs in the Meida, with mentions of HBO’s Temple Grandin release; “A Mother’s Courage”; Glee, and NBC’s “Parenthood.” With the exception of Glee, the focus this year seems to be ASD, especially Asperger’s. Finally, President Obama’ Expands Technology Access For Disabled is featured.
I am recommending the Friendship Circle blog as a great source of information for parents, families, and persons with disabilities, and I will be following.
