The dark side of social media for special needs Parents
This has happened to me many times, so I know it has to have happened to my fellow special needs parents! At least once, but I’m guessing way more. You post a very uncomfortable but important article about your child’s disability. Your post is an effort to educate everyone else or maybe ask for some prayer and support. Then minutes, hours, days later… crickets. No likes, no shares, no comments. Yet, all the other things you posted over the last few days have plenty of likes, shares, or comments. What gives?!
Discover our super simple 4 step process to lesson planning with special needs or when life is unpredictable (Works great with digital curriculum too)!
Lesson planning when life is unpredictable
Have you ever wondered how you should go about lesson planning in your homeschool? It can be hard to plan in detail or for an extended period when you are working around special needs. With my own family, we’ve tried several methods and had issues with planning too far ahead. We’ve also seen a lot of struggle, however, with flying by the seat of our pants and trying to be overly flexible. Yes, I said overly flexible; ha ha… Believe it or not, there is such a thing! I’m going to share what works for us, how we work it all out, and I hope that it will make planning easier for you too.
How can I make it easier traveling with a special needs child?
I see this question all the time! My kids are quite the little travelers at this point and should probably have their own child travel blog. 😂 They’ve made multiple trips from New Jersey to Houston and San Francisco by plane, moved back and forth between Hawai’i and California (now to Nevada), and countless road trips around the mainland. I suppose that’s one of the benefits to military life and having family all over.
Have you been trying to think of a fun way for your child (or students) to practice the social skills they’ve learned? Many people worry about academics but don’t let the summer slide happen to their social gains either…
