This summer has been a whirl wind. I have clearly signed my kids (especially Tyler) up for too many activities. We are doing baseball, horseback riding, swimming, training at Power Pals, Another sports program at Sport Time along with his feeding and audiology therapy. The good news is, he is really enjoying all the activities…thank goodness. I will be sharing all the goods these upcoming weeks, and I hope some more friends join us. If you are interested in any of these activities contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
For all the daddies out there!
Very often the support groups and resources are geared towards the ladies! In many cases we are the primary care-takers. But, what about the family settings where the fathers are taking the lead in caring for the children. Or, for the dads that just want to be more involved and learn more. Well, I wanted to pass this along for my fathers that read the blog. There is an excellent group for dads and male caregivers—http://www.longislandsnap.com/for meeting dates and times and to rsvp (which is a must), you need to email rick@longislandSNAP.com with your name, phone, loved ones’ diagnosis and number of guests attending. The group is not professionally moderated and conversations are driven by topics of interest. So to talk about life, parenting, marriage, and learn from other dads whose experience and insight can help you as a parent—join the group now!
Just wanted to let you know that someone I know passed along this great information regarding classes they are holding at the Farmingdale Library. In addition, they have an extensive amount of resources on all topics pertaining to special needs children. Check it out in the activities section of the blog.
