Laughing at Life's Realities

Came across this post by Nicole Thibault blogs for on special-needs parenting.

CORNING, N.Y. -- We have a unique family - three boys, two with Special Needs. Our oldest has Moderate Autism, our middle son is typically-developing, and our youngest son has Apraxia of Speech.
Our boys with Special Needs have both had hours and hours of therapy sessions over the years -- Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, and Special Education Therapy.  We've devoted much time as a family driving to and participating in activities for children with Special Needs, as well as dealing with autism behaviors in the home.
So it begs the question: How does our son without Special Needs handle living with two brothers with developmental issues? How is it for him, being sandwiched between an older brother and younger brother with Special Needs?

  1. Thanks for the repost. I am hoping my blog is reaching other families going through the same thing as we know you are not alone can be one of the biggest comforts.
