Hello and welcome to The Motivation Hotel. Created to inspire you, develop your self-motivation and help you find yourself. We hope you enjoy your stay.
I have worked with many types of special needs children and adults. They all want acceptance & love, just like the rest of the world. It is society that needs to be taught how to be kind. Teach our children to be kind to anyone who is different from them. Start teaching acceptance of all people as early as possible. I love all my special needs friends. They have taught me how to be a better person and to love everyone.
Yes, we learn to love and accept them as they are.
AYes from me,my beloved Son Champ..
He was totaly blind..Passed at the tender-age of 31..Epilepsy did it..19th July 2018..I wouldn't call it a loan from god to be honest
Some people in our society has to be enlightened that people with special needs are human beings just like everybody else.The love they deserve are the same love we cherish for ourselves, nothing less
I love this and our son Greg is the joy of our lives
Yes we all need friendship love & acceptance . Especially Special needs people.
Being human and respecting everyone's humanity...no more, no less.
I worked on a mentally challenged student of my school for 6 years. Captured the moments as much as was possible on my camera. I did resist all the bad efforts made against him. Guided him, cared him and loved him and ultimately he passed the Madhyamik Examination by securing highest marks from his school. Now he is doing his Higher Secondary study. I wrote a documentary book on him. But unfortunately no publisher shows interest in it. Presently working on a physical challenged student.# Kartick Das
My 10 yrs old son is suffering Of CP. He is my everything I can not do anything without him
I have a niece who is so talented .....and is a special child. The family adores this lady and is a GIFT to our entire family..!!!
Children are gift of god... the challenge of any to maintain special children is for the parents Neibour society school the local government and the central government ... all owe their bit to such children of God and must help them in all any any possible manner.
EVERY CHILD BORN is different and ALL have different Needs. Some are just more UNIQUE. Remember ALL Children are SPECIAL. DON"T make your opinion of Handicap a Child's Handicap. ADULTS often create handicaps in "normal" children.
They're gift fr.god..
Yup- seen this myself.. especially with teachers at school they will take a healthy, funny and smart child and convinced he/her and parents that they have a mental illness..just because he is a little odd. Shame Shame Shame
They are gift from Almighty
I love this!!! Shared!!! Aloha 🤙🏼

They're blessed to us.Thanks for sharing this.
I have 3 Children with special needs. I love them very much. I see how the world is to them. It's sad when they notice people say things about them. It's hard to hear they hide in the restroom because they don't have friends. My heart breaks. They will always be close to us. God put them here for a reason. Enjoy your children.
Of course. They are such a blessing to this world!!They are at times the best teachers of our human kindness
And blessings to those who take the time to listen to them !!!
I'VE WORKED WITH STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS FOR 42 years and I've also am a SPECIAL OLYMPIAN from South Bend,Indiana! All Children with Special Needs is RESPECT,LOVING, AND CHANCE TO BEA PART OF THE COMMUNITY IN EVERY STATE!
Like in the movie Split, we see them as “less than” but in reality they are often “more than.” My 17 yr old daughter may be of “less than” average intelligence, but she is certainly “more than” when it comes to heart and understanding. I only wish I could have her love and outlook on life. BTW, she was born with Trisomy 21, more commonly called Down Syndrome.
In my experience what I've received in return is boundless love and gratitude.
I had a niece with special needs, one of the sweetest little girl you would ever have the HONOR and PRIVILEGE to know. She brought joy to everyone she was around. My sister and my brother-in-law were the BEST parents in the world. They loved her so unconditional. I loved going to Mississippi with my children to visit them. I LOVED my NIECE so very muchHer aunt Roz
This is wonderful. What can I do to help. I believe everyone that has a heart should look to get involved to see what they can do to help families with children with special needs. My heart really goes out to both the children and families.
Special needs for special families. My children grew up my sister with special needs and my step brother with special needs. They have been taught to respect,love, honor their accomplishments and at times live life thru their eyes. This is how I raised my 2 adult children, who now are passing their experiences onto their children
So very true.
everybody is born equal...
Every child has needs and they are all special
You are doing the right thing ! God bless you !
Special needs kids are just like you and I. God loves us all the same. Please don't bully or make fun of them. God bless you all
My son with special needs is loved by all.He is smarter than you think.He has an amazing memory.I have always loved him and will always love him
Very great thinking about that children's. I will always love him.
This looks like the speech my daughter wrote
These Children are unique you have to be near them to know them
I am privileged to be working with blind kids. To me they are not special needs children. They work hard , do the same work as other schools and they ate so proud of their achievements. The ones seeing them as special needs persons have to re think this , in their case they are going to achieve their goals. Very ambitious.
I've had connections with special needs kids all my life, but I would NEVER share this post because of the final sentence. It such a cheap guilt trip. I resent the implication that I don't have a strong heart if I don't share. So rude.
Many replys have said 'they want & deserve what we,,,', But, How do we treat ourselves?! (Stresses, Depression, Anxiety,,)Will we Slow Down and allow ourselves to be vulnerable, enough to Love, appreciate, be a-part-of,??
Sweet memory of grandson Elijah Daniel Peterson😍 Love you, young man!!
Children need only love, i feel happy when i look smile at my dauthers face, they are my life,
Give your children many hugs and always say with your heartfelt word when you hug them “i love you very very much”.

I have to disagree with 'anonymous' who said we are all born equal Children who are born with diabetes, drug dependancy, spinal bifida,defotmity, or any of the many other anomalies with which a ndw born can be afflicted are not at all equal to the healtby new born.
I have noticed with a bleeding heart that most individuals can actually be good at writing powerful and motivating comments when in actual fact do not mean it. Talk is cheap, action speaks louder. A will to stand up and do, to physically give support. The world could even be a much better place.Gaborone, Botswana
My granddaughter has problems so does my son along with alot of other people I know. Please pray for me and my family and friends. We need help dealing with these issues. Can you help us???
They deserve our love and respect as human beings. It is not their fault their fate. There is a hard path ahead for them.God Bless them and please be kind and gentle.
As a child my rich politician Dad would beat my head with his fist from a young age, so with each new day the brain could not retain info because it was concussed. At age 50 + i still dont know my right from left without checkin. Now we tend to snap back to life after being knocked down, but it makes me wonder how many kids are learning disabled and how many are beat to seizures.
They are the future humans on earthDo all you can
What help you need Cobtact my Daughter she has just complicated her Master's degree in Special Educational in BC Vancouver University Her name FB Shveta Kambli
Does this include transgender, assexual, & gay kids? They were born that way too.
Dear Kartick, get in touch with 'pool' magazine editor in chief. They might be interested. Look up on FB or Google. Best wishes
I am so sorry about your abuse. Seems the ones in the spotlight are not who they pretend to be. You have to be an evil monster to abuse a child like that and then stand in front of the public and ask for trust and support from America. God Bless you! And just to let you know, my whole life til now, I still stall 4 seconds to decide which is left or right. ��
It truly is a loan from God. He only gives you what you can take. When I screamed at him asking why my child was born with problems I found a very small cut out article on my front door explaining that. I recently lost my husband one day short of 35 years together and I understood it...I was given a loan from God.He belonged to God, as we all do not me. It was a beautiful loan and I was blessed to have the years I did.
Yes they are special & need special attention.Allah's blessings in disguise.Allah help those who help themselves.
My daughter has a special needs child. When she was out in public other kids would look at her baby. She was fine with that, it is to be expected... children are curious. What bothered her was when adults would hush them and tell them to look away. She would rather them to be curious and ask questions than to be hushed by an adult. She was learning about her child's needs and she wouldn't mind an inquisitive little mind wanting to know also.

Many consider them as disabled, but the fact is that they are definitely a led in a different way. Having seen and heard from my wife who is a special educator for past 15 years, the need of the hour is to enable them. Society is a very important stake holder that should recognise this and should enable, empathise and encourage in all possible ways.
Special is just another word for God's little angel!!������
This is so right children with special needs need to be except they way they are and to be expected be like normal children to be loved the way they are
Dear Brother Sister, we are all equal in value
My son was born with autism but he came a long way. He is very loving ,sweet ,helpful and funny. He makes everybody happy most especially me.He is a gift from God and I learned a lot having a child with special needs. He taught me a lot to be more patient ,more loving and more caring. In fact having him made me a better if not best person that I could be. I am grateful to God for that blessing in my journey of life to grow and be the best mom I could be. For me children with special needs taught us to be more humane , understanding,caring ,patient and loving. They need love,respect, understanding and friends like everybody else.They taught us to be grounded and see that life even if it is not fair it is still beautiful !
All human are God's creation some are short tall black white bald burly hairHence treat all compassionate and behave
My son was a special needs child and he was the best thing ever the agencies that supposed to help don't do a full spectrum of service for them always. He is deceased now from Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy. I give all love and prayers for them.
Special needs! If what you do grows trust, then, the other will feel acceptance, they will open their buds and creativity will blossom. There is gentleness and vulnerability here. Over time, one deposit of trustworthiness at at time, combines these character strengths. Now is included more of confidence, strength, courage, enthusiasm and maybe even idealism. This is our hero's journey. We grow, one step by one step, into the person we know and the person we recognise. The person who we are meant to be. Stand up, be trustworthy
Why do we call them special because they are special. They might have capability issue like common human but they have some other unique capabilities which common man doesn't. I look at them as somebody superior to a common person. They indeed are.
I have two grandsons with atheism i love them so much

Great, I do agree this. Every child wants love, care , attention. God has created special children with some specialities.
They are Special... Children with Special abilities...Blessed With Special Caring Parents.. Blessed with Specially Caring Teachers...I Have 600+ Special Kids www.mpvss.in
In the year 2004 I was honoured to be a part of the Special Olympics in Athens Greece. I also participated in co writing the Olympic theme for the Athens Greece 2004 Olympics. After spending many hours with the athletes I realized that people are disabled when they look at special-needs people. Welook at them as being disabled but yet every day they function and go on with their lives even though they have special needs. Yes some need help and some need more than others!Actually in retrospect when you look at yourself you find you have disabled your mind to understand that even though they have great challenges they are still able to move forward and participate even in the Olympics!It is truly how we look at things how we label things. I have taught and been around many special needs children and found them to be so talented so loving and so wonderfully amazing!
The one thing that annoys me about public schools is that they feel the need to hide the special needs kids away from everyone else, not to say literally hiding (but ive seen some schools actually do that)but they make them not accessible to anyone. Story Time. I was talking to a special needs kid before and we kind of became friends, we were happily talking about anime and video games when a teacher comes over and tells me I can talk to him, the I respond with "why cant I talk to him" her response was "He is special needs" and then she tells him to go to the gym, and storm away glaring at me giving me the stink eye. I know its no my fault nut im super anxious so I was sitting there for 10 minutes trying to evaluate the situation. When I was at that school I would talk to him when I saw the not teacher around, but I would avoid her as much as I could, sadly ive moved schools now and hope he is ok. :/ Attempting to make some friends in the special needs classes because Ive had one with their eye on me for a while and he seems cool,we had a 1 minute conversation before I was caught by a teacher and told to go play basketball, even though it was free play day. of course after that experience with the first teacher, Im kind afraid to talk to him because of the teachers around him.
They are earth Angels!

We have a special person in our family. He never forgets whose daughter I am yet his cognizance stopped at 6 yrs.of age. He is so sweet and kind, knowing him has added something to my lifes'experiences that I would never have know otherwise.
My late wife was a Special needs teacher before special needs children was an acceptable social term. She was a compassionate person who taught the child and the parent. After retirement, she experienced pure joy when learning that her former students had all succeeded in their endeavors.
i love my kid even it hard for me to accept any reaction and comments from the people arounds us. God bless our children with special needs
I have ADHD and autism. I dont always feel as if i fit in anywhere. Every one deserves the right to fit in. We are all different, choose it embrace it not treat the person differently. I used to be scared to tell people I have special needs. Now i know they are just what makes me unique.
My son is SPECIAL NEEDS due to his major behavioral issues and a diagnosis of ADHD, PTSD AND ODD. Kids and adults alike are afraid of his fits of rage at times but, I have NEVER in my life met a person that feels as deeply as my son does. The reason he is in trouble most times for violence is because he is standing up for a friend or his sister even myself once against a bully. He cannot stand to sit back and do nothing when someone else is being hurt. He doesn't think or consider himself or the consequences in that moment he just acts as a protector immediately. He is only 7 and I wish more people had a heart as BIG AND GOLDEN as his. I also wish that he knew how to not be so impulsive and would handle the situation appropriately but getting an adult to handle it for him.
That's amazing God bless you both!!!
Special Needs children are a gift NOT a curse to this world.
My son is also a special children but very smart innocent i like and love him A God gift for me and my struggle in life is for only him
Hi how are you there with family? Hope you all okay. Jamie
This post has changed my idea about some students.. as a teacher i always talk about the few special students in staffroom.. but know i know how to deal with them.. if you cant teach them.. just love them.. it ll teach them
Everyone is a special need, only the degree of severity differs from one to another. Have passion in teaching the special need learners especially the HI
I have a son who was picked on and made fun on all during grade school and especially Jr. High School. I knew he was miserable having to go to school everyday. If I hadn't been a Christian and knew God wabted me to forgive all the kids who were doing this, and I have been told by a Counselor and teacher that he was not lying to me; everybody in the school wanted to be in on the action, so it was almost the school. It was hell and a good cry everyday after he left for school. If it weren't for God, I would have found out who the "ring leaders" were and personally made their life so miserable they wouldn't dare try it again, but my hands were tied. We did go to the principal with it and he sat with his hands folded and said there was nothing he could do. In high school we moved to another city and he decided it wasn't going to happen there. He started taking up for himself and fighting when someone tried to start something with him. Things got better and he made friends at his new school. However, as you might expect, the experience at the old school left a scar on his personality. I don't think he ever got over that. He is deceased now and I know he has friends in Heaven. If I ever know of this happening to another child, I would have to stay very close to the Lord; otherwise, I might be guilty of murder. That's how bad it is when you see your child go thru something like that. If it happens to another child, I hope I don't find out about it. The Lord would help me handled it and (I would let him. If I weren't a Christian I would have to wish that everyone who got in on this behavior with my son has a child who is picked on so they could see how bad it hurts parents and realize what he (and others) did to my child. The school where this happened was The Jr. High School in Rogers, AR and the principal's name was Mr. Jones. God bless him and all those who were involved.
It's really quite simple. Treat them as you would anyone else. Make eye contact, say hello. Just like everyone else. Inclusion. That's what we can all do for them. I promise you will gain more from having a friendship with a person with different abilities they they will. I'm proud to be one of the lucky few. My daughter is the best thing that has ever happened to me. She is teaching me to truly love life and to live in the moment.
I love the post, except for the phrase Special Needs, as a disability advocate and someone who has Cerebral Palsy, the term special needs has a condescending attribute to it. Over time, the term "special" came to be used as a descriptor for the persons themselves, and that, over time, led to the negative connotation; calling someone "special" is now most often taken sarcastically to mean that the person is mentally disabled in some way. Instead of using the term special needs we can use the phrase people who have disabilities, or people with disabilities. This takes away the stereotype and puts the individual before the disability.
May the Peace of Christ be with these beautiful Souls who suffer with this atrocity and their loved ones too. Prayers ��
Im so sorry.hope this helps.LearnTheRisk.org
I would say they are unique with some more special abilities and as an exception, they might be either lacking or having some issue with one of the 5 senses. More precisely society needs to encourage and accept them without any stereotypes or partialities and spread love to make the world heaven for all dwellers of mother earth.
Yes there all Gods children 🙏🏼
Please read my post about my daughter on FaceBook.
My daughter has always not been treated with respect because she ie non verbal and at the age of now she like a one year old. She has been sexually abuse twice. Now she only goes to a day center where the take them out only four hours a day and that’s it. I have her with me most of the time. I DONT TRUST ANYONE!!
Sorry I forgot to mention that she is 24 years old
You know I never thought about life that way but it makes sense. Jesus lends us to the world. Only borrowedSounds so real.
I’m sorry that she was sexually abused, I was too.
If you don’t like the day program, then take her out of it. You are the parent after all.

OK...But how does re-posting actually HELP any kids?? "Let's see who has a strong heart" is really kind of vain, isn't it?
Our son who had cerebral palsy and who died unexpectedly at the age of twenty-three is the reason I wrote a memoir, THE PLACE OF US. My book is guided by the pivotal moments in our life with him. Many of which were about our fight to have him included in his neighborhood school. It’s about love and courage and how we apply those entities to our daily life. In a nutshell, it’s about what we do when life surprises us. It’s available for pre-order at widopublishing.com. If you’ve ever loved a child, experienced prejudice, lost someone, or are working hard to become who you’re meant to be then your heart will beat in this book.
lovely post. its a shame that some schools are discriminating, my grandson is 5 and not allowed to attend full time school, he can go in the morning for 2 hours with his mum sitting in the class room, but then he has to go home for the rest of the day.He hasn't even been diagnosed with any learning difficulty's as yet. the school feel he needs extra help but cant give it to him so send him home were he is not mixing or learning to mix.this is so sad.
People can be so cruel...I had a very special needs son who is now with the lord...My own sister and her young daugter...were making jokes one day while we were going somewhere...and in very poor taste...I learned things about my sisister who I had always respected...until...her jokes about disabled children slobbering on the windows of short yellow buses. My heart broke and I was so shocked I couldn't say anything the rest of the day. I couldnt cry...even though it was all I wanted to do. I will never see her the same way again...everyone (including her) thinks she is so perfect....if they only knew the things I seen and heard while living with her. It hurts beyond repair...I wish I had never heard or seen so many things....I wish I was a blind as everyone else...because I see these things in my mind everytime I see her.
My daughter is 6 and is a special needs child and is the sweetest happiest lil girl and when I was in elementary school in the 5 the grade I helped out with special needs children. ❤❤❤❤
For 19 years I was the sponsor of the pancake breakfast at the "Great Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Race", helping to raising money and awareness for and about people with physical and mental disabilities. Started in Harris Field in Homestead, moved to the Homestead Air Base Golf Course on 127th Avenue, and finally to Tamiami Airport. I also hired a few of the individuals with disabilities to work in my restaurants (IHOP in Homestead and Naranja). Sadly that all ended when I lost my business during the housing market crisis in 2008. No other restaurant stepped in to help and the event was moved to Tuscaloosa in Alabama I believe.
Not everyone has a disability that you can see I'm dyslexic and I'm Bully and taken advantage of for friendship still at the age of 54 years old.

If you categorise them as Children ''with special needs"! It ends your argument there and then. They are Children. Your Children. Our Children. Everybody's Children. Stop it.

My baby girl has a trachestomy and at first it was hard to even leave the house because of how people looked at her and pitied her, this one time a lady in the taxi pulled out her tracheostomy saying she thought it was a necklace. She is 18 months old and we have had the tracheostomy for a year now. Now we go anywhere we want to go, I still get alot of questions and I respond to those who seem sincere about them. I stopped caring what people thought or said and just focused on my baby girl.
For several years I drove the special school bus... " my kids " where no different then their fellow students…
I compared to special need kids they were different but they were so cool they were like family to me and I saw them as human beings that needed a little extra help from other people can the average person but no different.......
Yes... will sure support every special needs kids becoz my daughter also one of the special kids and the way she mingle with her brothers is extraordinary....
Thankful for the opportunity to care for 2 adopted special needs kids who are now in their 20's and were adopted when they were just about 4 years old...both tube fed...both total care and very lovely individuals who are smart and their adoptive mom is their charge nurse...felt an honor to care for them.......
I have always supported special needs children. All kids need different types of attention. Special needs kids just need more.
Wawooo that’s nice https://bit.ly/33NIhS1
It is good to see so many taking the time to add their thoughts for a very special post , just a pity Politicians didn't take heed
Hello my name is Janice Whyte I have a son I do not now what's wrong with him he is 16 years old I think he is mentally disturb can someone help me he is giving me lots a trouble he does well at school I took him to counciling it does not help I don't what else to do
I’m 20 years old and I work with children from ages 3-12 most being special needs. Every single day they put a smile on my face I couldn’t be more thankful for my job. They teach me so much more then I ever thought possible. It puts a smile on my face reading these comments.
I would share if you hadn't put the manipulative comment at the end. I know my friends very much believe in this statement. But I'm not going to guilt them into reposting.
I'm an old guy. Americans have always treated mentally and physically handicapped people with compassion, kindness and charity. We didn't have to relabel them, special "needs," to shame people into being overly generous. We should all be expected to do the best we can. Special needs implies special entitlement. Just sayin. I have nothing against the handicapped or naturally disadvantaged, I'm just sick of PC BS. Some say, I'm autistic and now I'm, older. I'll never expected special attention.
I used to ask GOD why? Why would u allow these things such as the above mentioned comments, what did they do to deserve whatever incapacities to innocent children or ppl in general? As we know it is not our place to judge or question the Creator. I had a hard battling with that so at some point I just came to the conclusion that GOD created us all in his image and there is a greater purpose some way, or where, or what, there was a valid reason no matter what. It may not seem so to us, but maybe for someone or something else. BY NO MEANS MINIMIZING. All I, me can say or do is pray for all good things to those suffering or not. My son has brain cancer inoperable. They said he wouldn't live to b 30. This was @ the age of 23, well he's almost 32???? So I struggle as well with the same thing. GOD BLESS ALL OF US!!!
People should be fully equipped certified and enlightened to help one with special needs.
They are smart, intelligent, they expect everyone to treat them equal, they don't like us when we lebel them. We need to speak to them politely.
Jackie Prescott. Thank you for being you!! Wish everyone was same. I.have 3 multi disabled children who are brilliant, creative, amazing human beings. People wouldn't (& many times don't believe any) believe the severe extreme symptoms, chronic debilitating pain, & numerous things they endure wven thru nights many times. Others can be compassionate & kind even when they don't understand. Or can be cruel & act as if it's all "fake or an exaggeration" even tho they only hear a bit. The kind people can be the difference between a heavy heart & more emotional pain or a haven of comfort and another day a child (or adult) decidwd to not give up (or take their own life) & got up & faced another day with courage!! So thank YOU & EVERYONE WHO IS KIND & COMPASSIONATE to special needs children ❤❤❤
Seeing them makes one love them natural. They need love and care from the society. Let's give it to them.
Good for u!
As someone who is on the special needs spectrum I like being called "weird" or "odd", it's a compliment. When people call me that I feel they have been observant to know not to put me in the same box like they do everyone else. The majority of people I know who could be considered "mainstream" or "normal" are boring and are very in the box, traditional thinkers. Being special needs forced me to find nontraditional solutions to problems because I don't think or see the world the same as others. It allowed me to realize that not everyone has to have the same destination in life to be successful & I certainly can't walk the same path as the mainstream. I am happy, healthy, secure in a career & working to move up, self sufficient, 3 time college graduate with an MBA & I'm not done yet. I used to care about being accepted when I was younger but at 38, I could careless but you will respect regardless of whether you accept me or not.
It's a funny old world that we live in?how people can be so discriminate against other human beings just because some people have to have special needs they don't just pretend to need help they really need every bit of help from fellow human beings just think when u see sombody with special needs the boot could be on the other foot sort of speech

I have a different take. YES, kids with special needs are weird. They are odd. They are different. WHAT'S SO BAD ABOUT THAT?? I think even special needs kids are smart enough to know when you're blowing smoke up their ass. They know they are weird and denying it isn't helpful. Teach them to take pride in their particular form of weird and use it for good if you can figure out how.
I am so sorry that people are so unkind. If everyone would just open their brains and their heart to Peace that these children bring this whole world would be such a wonderful place!#StayBlessed my friend!
I also have a 5 year old special needs daughter. She has partial trisomy 13. Not a lot of people about about this chromosomal disorder. It is an extra piece of chromosome number 13. People don’t understand what special needs parents go through and they don’t know how to show that they are genuinely concerned about them either. It’s a tough road but I believe that there’s a purpose for these types of challenges and we’re not the only ones going through this.
God bless all. You all bring joy to each one of us
You must be happy to know that in Kerala State, India, the famous Magician Gopinath Muthukad http://muthukad.com/ started special schools for such children. Those children are learning art, magic etc. Their performance in dance, drawing and other activities are unbelievable.
Nobody understands untill he or she goes through the same, Differently abled kids are not less than the normal kids.Battle is won by EXTRAORDINARY soldier, not by ORDINARY people.Salute to all parents n kids ...fighting odds.I am also a father to a differently abled kid.
God bless all the children. They all need help sometimes, some morethan others. God bless all.
Children with special needs are also God's gift. There is a teaching community behind them. They are fully dedicated for those children. Our authorities and public should open your eyes and hear what they have to say. It's high time for this.
I have a son with special needs. He is now 31 years old. He can not do things by himself. We love him so much that we do everything for him.
I had epilepsy in school in the 1970's. I was bullied by classmates and teachers alike. Also , since I was so proficient in writing and grammar my dyacalculia was never diagnosed. I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in my 40's. As a female, I feel I " fell through the cracks" so to speak. I was also misdiagnosed with Bipolar 1 when my medical records clearly state seizures. It has been difficult , to say the least.
My son Eric, is developmentally disabled, since the age of 12, he is now 35. He has been battling debillitating grand mahl seizures, and pains from scoliosis, in his back and legs. He has taken numerous falls, and injured his head, back and front. But, he still gets up every morning and takes showers, grooms himself, dresses himself w/ help. Eats his meals, without confrontations, and watches tv, reads, plays his games, plays his guitar. Eric is autistic, and has never read musical notes. He has self taught himself how to play his guitar. He is my gift. At times i have blamed myself for the way he has become. But, god has taught me not to question his ways. Sooo...i just accept eric for the way he is, and i love him unconditionally no matter what.
My special needs Granddaughter and she is my love and my heart and my life! Alaura has Autism but she is Alaura not the child with Autism named Alaura. Alaura. She was born wieghing 3.1 oz. I call her my Angel Baby because her lungs were noy fully. She's my Angel cause shevmade it. She was in NICU in St.Pete for 17 days. The happiest day in my life was bringing her home. It isn't easy having a cihild with a disability, it's alot of work and sacrifice. My thoughts and prayers go out to those with our loving special chidren. They are worth it.Love them and keep them close because maybe they can't voice the love for you,but they do. God Bless.
I have adapted to my environment , the many disabilities are there, well controlled with medication, I'm intelligent , know right. From wrong but in still cannot stand on my own 2 feet ,can't make a living , thanks to the country I live in there are compassionate people who take care of people like me ,so I can have my dignity,really all I need is the stigma to go away , and be respected the same as everyone else , when I was 2 my mom didnt watch me to good and I fell 7 feet off the top basement steps head first into the concrete floor below ,the swelling. On my brain has caused a chemical imbalance , I suffer from o.c.d ,adhd , social anxiety , manic depression ,emotional disorder, manic psychosis , and schizophrenia , but yet on the medication you wouldn't notice ,you can't see mental illness , just think how worse it would be without meds , I see a psychologist ,a psychiatrist , a physician and 2 specialist , in short I just want to anonymously thank the caring country I love in and the people who pay taxes that make it possible for me to live on my own with dignity , thanks for carrying me through this life , I'm rambling I know , so I guess I'll leave it at a thank you to the American tax payer , for not leaving me behind ,

Hi ppl cn u pls help with an electronic wheel chair for my brother his doing his 1st year he uses crashers n classes n res. Are far apart
I truly wish there were more people like all of those commenting on this site back in the 50s and 60s. My older brother was born in 1948 and even the Doctors back then did not know enough disabilities to know what to do. They kept my brother away from my Mom for the first 7 days of his life, finally on the 8th day they brought the baby to her and says” don’t get too attached to him because he will probably not see his 5th birthday”. How in the world could a Doctor do that or say that to a first time mother. They labeled him retarded, he was the furthest thing from retarded growing up. Back then the term Autistic didn't even exist. As an adult we all knew he was Autistic. My brother got the last laugh on them he outlived all the Doctors who gave him until his 5th birthday, I just lost him last September and he was 71. He lived a good life, we had good times together. I really miss him.
Check with your church. There are services available that your priest or Father can reach out to. Eg: St Vincent de Paul, Goodwill, the Lions Club, charitable organizations, etc. Call around or check with your priest or family for more organizations or other churches. Good luck!
I can't read very good I'm been in special ad in school
I 100% agree
Every human being is different. It is normal to have your need fulfilled in a different way for the right reason, so with kids.
Every individual, especially Children W/ Special Needs deserve the right education considering their needs and interests. They should not be deprived with their rights to have access to education wherein their special needs, special attention, and special learning techniques, strategies, and approaches in the teaching and learning process must be the concerned priorities. This is for them to exercise and develop their innate talents, skills, and their multiple intelligences. Thus, they do have the right to be educated in an institution with special center of excellence with teachers that are capable and trained enough to meet their needs. Let them feel they are worthful living existing in this world. Let them showcase their potentials. Thank you Tots At Work family for letting me experience teaching pupils with special needs for almost 3 years and letting me feel this way every now and then...#feelingBlessed��#CSNareGIFTEDinGod'sDifferentWays��
Even family members were harsh towards her i ended up being her fighter making sure am alwyas there to defend her for the outside world as other kids her age would discriminate her and jst make her feel unfit or unwanted. All i ever asked for them not to even make her feel that shes different Her name is Amohelang .means accepting....she loves being around other ppl
I have son with autism disorder , he was 20yearsold now and im very proud of him..never treated him different and we always giving him love and understanding..
I love my educationally challenge daughter who is God's gift to us Naomi Ruth.
I have been working wit “special needs” individuals for over 20 years. I hope to work with them as long as I can. It is the only job I ever enjoyed!
Special kids are amazing and been around them will simply show you how to love,be gentle,kind and real..They speak to your heart in a way that you will never forget.
Yes special child has a special talent..a gift..thanks God to your niece talent...
There isnt need of strong heart but of soft heart that can feel their pains and understand their unique qualities. Blessed are those that care and love and support the specially abled. As for me living with a specially abled son gives me courage and fight against all odds that life has to bestow
I have a son with Down Syndrome and he showed me a world that I haven't been before. He brings out the best in me as a mother I never thought I have. Love them so dearly. The world may look at them differently but they are the same and unique as everyone else. Be kind to them and be educated about kids with special needs.
About forty years ago, I was introduced to Special Education teaching the first early infant education grant in DC. Today, one of the parents from that grant invited and took my family to church with her. What joy!I can only recall with joy deep satisfaction the privilege of being the first teacher to give hope and support to a mother or father who showed up with a baby with severe developmental needs. But the joy that each child brings, the tenacity, the inspiration to thrive, the thrill of achieving one syllable, one step, is worth any investment. Today, I have a mute nephew and an autistic great niece. I am so grateful that I can look back on my life and feel grateful for the years I worked with children and adults with special needs.
When my wife and I found out our son was on the spectrum. We were devastated ! My wife more but from that very moment my mind shifted to believing he would be ok and live a normal life as possible. Yes it has been a very long tough road! Was not always easy and we also had to shelter him at times ! But....as time moved on we took him off all meds...his psychologist had the nerve to get upset and told my wife and his Grandmother that he’d bale back on them! We’ll he turned 20 on Christmas Eve 2019. They said he’d never feed, dress, toe his shoes, use the bathroom on his own, speak, comprehend etc. for the recorded He talks, he has emotions, shows love, eats himself and at times helps his mom cook, does all those things that was said he wouldn’t do. He writes and reads, uses an iPhone, laptop, last year I let him drive his late granny’s car around the block while with him. Stop has things to conquer BUT MEVER GIVE UP AND SHOW THEM LOVE AND CONTINUE TO FIGHT THE BATTLE FOR THEM!!
