We've both learned through our experiences. You know, the thing that really disappoints me is this- school boards, superintendents, administrators and principals have a choice. They may either think of special education in terms of the burdens and limits it places on educating the mainstream population, or they can accept the difficulties and try to craft creative and forward thinking approaches. Most of them choose the former and because many of us are at our own personal limits just trying to raise our own kids, they know they can wait us out because we are only passing through.
