Since I’m in the midst of my kids’ birthdays, I wanted to mention an article I wrote over at the Special Kids NYC blog (you may remember that this past June I launched Special Kids NYC as a consulting service for local parents of children with special needs). The article is called 7 Tips To Enjoy Your Special Needs Child’s Birthday and it gives parents concrete ideas to make birthdays easier and more enjoyable both for the birthday child…and for themselves (if you’re not a special needs parent and don’t know what the downside of birthdays can be, I especially encourage you to read it). Please also share the article with anyone you feel may benefit from it. Thanks!
