What issues matter to you?

As the parent of a child with a disability or special needs, what type of stories or resources are you most interested in? Are there areas that you feel haven't received adequate attention or dialogue? Is there a taboo topic you'd like discussed?

Please help me ensure that BLOOM is covering issues related to parenting kids with disabilities that matter most to you as parents – and which can assist the professionals working with our kids.
Thanks! Louise


Your blog and BLOOM are wonderful resources. There hasn't been as many articles/posts about coping with aqcuired injuries- strategies, and insights from other families, for those who may be new to the world of disability issues.

If a person wanted to check credibility/incident reports on an establishment that is involved with special needs children, where do they call?

Do all therapy centres and daycares have to be registered? and with who?

I don't know if you're still taking suggestions...

My son has PDD-NOS. I would love to see some articles, read some "chatter" from parents that also have children with PDD-NOS.

Hi -- The second question posted was answered in a subsequent post here:

Thanks for the idea re families new to the world of disability through acquired disability. Let me think about that! Shannon, maybe you can suggest a topic related to PDD-NOS?

Thanks everyone!
