So the family was having dinner with grandma and by about 30 mins into the meal my daughter started freaking out wanting to get up and run around so I had to carry her outside screaming and crying and everyone looking at us. So I started breaking down. I don't know what to do when stuff like that happens.

Hi!

Just wondered if anyone out there is on management or some other "high powered" career. If so, how do you balance work demands with caring for your child? Is this really doable? Wondered if employers are more enlightened these days.

Hi. My son has been diagnosed with PDD-NOS with global developmental delay. He is 8. I am so lost lately finding what games I could keep him busy with or what can I play with him.

My son's IEP meeting is coming up and we are trying coordinate the date and time with everyone. The SSD teacher gave us two available dates, one of which the Gen. Ed. teacher would not be able to attend unless the principal is able to find another teacher within the school to cover her class for 30 minutes so she could attend for a little while. I need to research some but wanted to find out if anyone had personal experience with this. Is the school required to provide a substitute for the teachers… read more

I do not think it is mandated they get a sub so a certain person can go, we always tell them we will wait until the teacher can be there
