I should have some great spotlights in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned, but in the meantime I thought I'd share a couple of cool special needs related links.
Hashtag #toylikeme social media campaign spreads like wildfire in the UK for smaller (and now larger) toy companies to start making toys with disabilities. Such a fantastic idea!
LOVE this story about a special needs mama fighting to let special needs families take vacations. The gist--a lot of medically fragile children receive hours of round the clock nursing care for their children each week paid for by medicare. BUT these families can't use these same allotted hours to allow a nurse to come with their families on vacation. In her own words, "Our seriously disabled child doesn't have the right to visit his own grandmothers." This needs to change. Read more here, sign the petition here (already 13,000+ strong!).
Have a fantastic weekend!
