It really is about ABILITY and not disability - that’s what I keep learning
It’s 5 : 15 PM on day 775 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth,publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast, drink milk by myself, tweet about my Chain of Good competition – I got three more people to agree to participate I’m happy about that – and hang out with my family.
Today I read Adults with autism still finding their ‘special place’ under the sun which made me realize that special needs parents fall into one of two groups the My Child Can group or the My Child Can’t group those in the My Child Can group notice every “little thing” that their child can do and celebrate it like there’s no tomorrow whereas those in the My Child Can’t group dwell on the one or two things their child cannot do it’s really sad I feel bad for the kids of parents’ in the My Child Can’t group because they see themselves though their parents’ eyes. Do you focus on your child’s abilities or disability?
