I'm here!!!
Sammy is 8 (9 at the end of August)and has dev delays, seizures, and I'll be darned if the behavior problems aren't rearing thier ugly heads again :(
Ruby is 4 and has speech delays.
From Emotions to Advocacy is the only special needs book I've read, but I do like it.
www.wrightslaw.com is pretty good site, I really don't know of any others - but ivillage is the best!
