    Thanks again Widget...

    My oldest son (22) who has an ID, ADHD, possible mild ASD and mental health issues is currently in hospital after foolishly injecting himself with an unknown amount of someone's insulin. He's spent 5 days in ICU and they still can't regulate his blood sugar levels

    Although my youngest has CP and is in a wheelchair, Josh has always been my most trying SN child... and I've often thought God has more faith in me than I do when it comes to this boy.

    Hi everyone,


    I am a student at UTS and was wondering if anyone will be interested in helping me with answering a few questions? :/ I need your opinions for a report I am currently writing on special needs education. Its aim is to prove that the Snoezelen Room (multi-sensory room) will be of great benefits for a special needs child with their learning progress. If it won't be much of a bother, will you please help me answer some questions? [IMG]file://localhost/Users/sibanlimbu/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/msoclip/0/clip_image002.png[/IMG]

    Much appreciated..xx

    Q1. Do you feel that education for special needs is an important or unimportant social issue? Please explain.


    Q2. What does special needs education mean to you?


    Q3. Can you describe when you first became aware of children with special needs? What were your initial thoughts and feelings?


    Q4. Do you think children can benefit in regular classroom regimes (“inclusion”) or do you feel it will be more beneficial if they study in special needs schools that have professional guidance?


    Q5. If there were an opportunity to aid these children with difficulties, would you volunteer to take part in it? Why? How would you help them?



    Q6. “The government should focus more on main****** education than special needs education”. How far do you agree with this statement? Please explain.


    Q7. Are you satisfied with the amount of effort put in towards improving the learning environment for children with special needs? Why and why not?

    Hi

    Saw this thread. I too was using an overseas forum... also found myself trying to explain our health system which I must admit I still find confounding.

    After much help I was lead here. This is brilliant idea! Thank you

    Anyway I'm new here, my daughter (only child at this time) is 4. She's been seeing a speechy for at least 2 years now due to issues with her ears. She's such a trooper. She's got delayed learning & a range of a few other things & going through assessment now...

    My hubby & I want another, but are worried how she will handle it. We have waited this long because it's taken this long to get here. Just curious of your thoughts, how other parents with sn children deal with or whether u recommend us to go against it... We keep hearing the worst things about doing so, even our families r discouraging it....

    Hi Leztenelly

    Welcome to the site!! I'm currently pg with number 2 (very early days) but number one is a sn child who is 2 and a bit with cerebral palsy and a whole range of other issues. I'd say go for it if you can think you can handle it, our families are very supportive of us having another and we have a lot of help with our DS and he will be going to a school based program next year 2 days a week (like 3 yr old kindy) at a special school. He also has hearing issues moderate hearing loss (refuses to wear his hearing aids) and can't talk or walk he babbles a lot and is getting a walking frame soon. the way we approached it is that we thought it would be good for us to hopefully have a healthy child also good for him to have a sibling and try to have some normality. It is going to be hard as will be like having two babies at once but I feel that now is the time to do it before he gets too much older and it gets too hard. Goodluck HTH and I'm sure one of the other mums might chime in

    Oh and just to add, as I get bigger I plan on getting DS a doll to play with to get him used to the idea of a baby, to sort of prepare him for the changes that are coming. Maybe this is something you could do with your DD as she is a bit older and may understand more. Also does she have any younger cousins that you could get her accustomed too.

    Thanx for the welcome Sehan

    I love the idea of the doll. Best of luck with the bubs to come look forward to hearing how the pregnancy goes. Hope your feeling well, & morning sickness is not taking over

    Hello Everyone.
    I don't get on here as much as I'd like to.

    DS just had stage one of his surgery Yesterday. 6months till the next one.
    He is recovering very well. I am a mess. I never imagined how hard it would be to hold him while they put him under or to wait for him to wake up. It has given me nightmares.

    I was struck by the thought, while I watched him, Why am I having another. I have enough to deal with. Can I really give DS the attention he needs if I have another baby?
    DH was very happy to tell me that Yes I can do everything. DS needs me but I am not going to be away I am just going to be a little busy.
    He will learn to wait which is something he sorely needs. Lol

    If you think your DH is able to help you out when you need it and you think you can handle everything if you were to have another SN child then go for it.

    Default Re: Can we start a new Special Needs Chat???

    Mad house mummy I feel for you.
    It's so hard to grieve the life they would have had but much worse to hear what you have had to. Hugs.
