This is what a neighborhood is all about. Janice sent this as a comment to an older post, but I felt that it should be listed up front as it is an awesome idea!
I live in Mt. Greenwood and I have an 8 year old child with Autism. With the unfortunate prevalence of Autism, ADD and ADHD I thought that there is probably a desire for Mom's and Dad's to connect in this community. We know how difficult, and sometimes heartbreaking, everyday tasks can be on the whole family of a special needs child. I'm looking for a means to bring our children together to help them learn to socialize and create friendships that they can't create on their own. I also hope to establish the unique support of one another that only another special needs parent can understand and provide. This site is such a wonderful means for us to connect I thought this would be a great place to start.
If you live in Mt. Greenwood and have a school aged child with special needs and are interested in connecting I've established an email as a means to get the ball rolling.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and hopefully parents and children alike can get the support and camaraderie we all need so very much.
Have a blessed and happy New Year!
