The new school year is on the horizon, or maybe your kids have already started, either way it can be a fun but trying time for parents and kids alike. That can be especially true if you have a child who struggles with school, attention, and focus, among other behavioral challenges. It’s never easy getting kids transitioned into a new school setting. Been there, done that! Understanding and advocating for our children is so important.
Imagine what life was like before your children for just one minute. Did anything prevent you from going places or visiting locations? Now fast forward to your first child….Are there places you simply don’t go to anymore, like your favorite restaurant because it isn’t considered “kid-friendly” or you are afraid of how your child(ren) will behave? What if your child had a disability that made going to any restaurant seem impossible.
