Why I would change my daughter if I could

Special needs parents say all the time 'I wouldn't change them for the world' and that's great for them. But for me, I would change things in a second, if I could! I know that makes me sound like a horrible person but let me explain.

To mainstream or not to mainstream – the biggest choice we make as special needs parents

Making the choice to send your child to a specialist school or a mainstream school is an extremely personal and sometimes controversial one,  No special needs parent takes it lightly.  There's so much to consider, it depends on each individual childs needs, the area you live in, what schools are available and so much more.  - This post is based on my own personal experience, and is merely one opinion, and an insight into how I came to my decision.
