Hi, I am not a parent of a special needs child, but I have worked as support staff within the school system, driving bus and working in classrooms for over twenty years. I also recently started working in a community living situation for adults with disabilities. I went to college with a blind friend, and that is who I trust to repair my appliances. We are also members of the same church. He does nursery work, and also sound board for us. Great guy. I have lots of opinions about ability, and disability.
