Hi, my name is Dana and I am a mother of two wonderful children. My youngest has special needs. She is an active 11 year old who attends a local mainstream school with a teachers aide. She’s played soccer with a local football club and is now trying netball. She loves swimming, riding her modified bike and bowling.
As a mother of a special needs child, I am passionate about mainstreaming my child and the inclusion of children with special needs. I will be sharing some of our success stories and the challenges we have encountered along the way with our daughter. As well as sharing some tips to hopefully help other families in a similar situation succeed as well. Why recreate the wheel. If our experiences can assist even one family I will feel that this blog has succeeded in my intentions.
I look forward to hearing about your stories and sharing your successes or challenges.
Please also ask me any questions in relation to mainstreaming or inclusion of children with special needs and I will attempt to assist you or if not me, hopefully there will be someone out there that can.
Please stay in touch. I will be posting my first story soon.
