I am a Special Education teacher who blogs about my super-powered special needs family. My 3 year old has Prader-Willi Syndrome and my 5 year old has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Sensory Processing Disorder. The odds of these random genetic events occurring at the same time are astronomical. When you add our typically developing one year old baby boy to the mix, you have a very busy household!
Our lives have too many appointments, too many school problems, and are generally too busy as we try to live life to the fullest.
A BIG HELLO!
Did you just stumble across my blog in search of a genetic disorder? Please stick around and visit for a while. I would love to get to know you. Feel free to add comments or links about anything that touches your life.
It can be lonely in the land of Special Needs, it’s nice to connect with each other.
