Regular Lives for Families with Children with Disabilities

Regular Lives for Families with Children with Disabilities

I couldn’t love this more!

“A medical diagnosis is NOT the defining characteristic of a person.”

Medical facts are important and necessary in order to get the best care possible. BUT – making PREDICTIONS about what a person will accomplish in their lives when that person is a CHILD, is irresponsible. NO one could have predicted where Temple Grandin – who didn’t speak till she was FOUR YEARS OLD – would be today looking at her when she was 3.

Get your child what they need to be their best selves, but at the same time, let your child be a child.
