I think having the curriculum both in class and online is the best model. This way the children are not isolated, but on days when they are unable to focus or attend class, they have access to the full breadth of the curriculum later.

I think the intake process for special needs children can be better. And it doesn't always take the feelings of the children into consideration.

I think the intake process for many groups and services is broken. This is just one example.

Worst. Mix Tap. Ever.
Continued tales from the parent of a child with Asperger's Syndrome.

Having to record your child raging at you, and ultimately physically attacking you is bad enough. Having to play it back to pick out the most offensive bits is a new level of hell altogether. "To hell with you! I HATE YOU!...

Wife ordered a piece of wall art from Zulily and it was "delivered" today by LaserShip. At least we guess it was Lasership. The delivery person was in an unmarked white mini-van blaring bass-laden dance music with the volume knob set to 11. I heard it through closed doors and windows in the rear of the house. Went down to find out who was waking our child during naptime with that obnoxious music and saw the driver in a red jacket walking...nearly stumbling...to their van. Oh - and the package? Giant hole torn in the side of the box through which you can clearly see the picture frame. When we tried to open the bottom of the package, shards of broken glass fell out onto the carpet. All in all not what I would call a class act. Zulily is making good by shipping a replacement item - but I'll be shocked if it gets here in one piece if they keep using Lasership.
