Hello all, I received an email from Tera at the 'Kidz' blog. There is a student from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA who is doing her thesis on the LDS theology of disability. She is looking for parents of special needs kids to interview. While she is primarily focusing on the LDS view, she is also looking for parents of other faiths. She is not LDS herself. It is a very intriguing project. You can read more about it on her blog here. Even if you don't want to participate, it may be interesting to follow her blog to see what she finds out. She explains it much better than I do. If you are interested, the best way to reach her is at email@example.com
Hey everyone. I am looking to take Mason in to get a thorough vision screening done, but I don't feel like I can take him to just any optometrist. It needs to be someone patient, good with children, and able to help a child who may not respond well to the "normal" routine of an eye exam. Have you taken your kids anywhere? Who do you recommend? I am looking preferably in Weber/Davis county, but I can travel a little if necessary.
Just wanted to let you all know that the FREE special needs dance class is starting up again in Hooper. There is a one time $10 registration fee. They meet at 5:15 on Wednesday nights at the Dance Image Studios 5495 S. 5900 W. ( right across the street from Hooper Elementary. ) MK was in the class last year and REALLY loved it. Any age, and any ability is welcome. Spread the word.
