Inclusion ROCKS: Friends ROCK!

I can’t believe that Brooklyn has been in school three weeks and I have not done a single blog post about 5th grade yet. SHE IS LOVING IT!!! So far my favorite story was last week. When I picked her up her afternoon 1:1 aide shared a story with me. She said that two of […]


The other day I was on the phone with a Rett dad (and personal friend)  we were talking about school  and our daughters and I made the comment “Even the worst day in inclusion is still better than the best day in “seclusion!”  He said “ohhhhh, that is good. You should do a post on […]

Adapting school work – full inclusion – 2nd grade

I have had LOTS of Rett Mammas ask me to post about how we adapt Brooklyn’s school work. She is fully included in the second grade this year. I promise to blog more of our day to day adaptions! But I will get an initial post here to help show you the basics :) Keep […]

Why I love inclusion

Those of you who read my blog know that Brooklyn is attending a “typical” first grade room for most of her day. I love inclusion, I love that my school is so supportive if inclusion and I love that the kids there love Brooklyn. I recently had a mom email me a couple of her […]

Farewell 2014….

I will start this post with an apology…..what a blog slacker…..I thought it might be a good idea to do an end of the year post to touch on some of the highlights (and not so “high”lights of the year. <this is a LONG post – you have been warned!> January – We began the […]

HOW did Brooklyn “ROCK” her quizzes???

Yesterday I shared this picture of Brooklyn after school on facebook, saying she ROCKED two quizzes.  I had a couple comments and emails asking about how she took them so I thought I would do a blog post to help explain it a bit more. (Thank you Beth – emailing you encouraged me to share!) […]

How do you do it?

Lately, (maybe since it is Awareness month and I am talking about Down Syndrome and Rett Syndrome more) I have had quite a few people ask me “How do you do it?”  Which reminded me that back in 2010, I had a friend that was doing a series of blog posts about “How do you […]

Rett Syndrome Awareness Month: Miss Brooke

Miss Brooke is Brooklyn’s aide this year in third grade and yesterday she got married. It was such a special day! There were lots of beautiful pictures taken (I can’t wait to see all the love that her photographer captured) but this one above that I took prior to the ceremony is by far one […]

iPads in the classroom

Of course my first Rett Syndrome post for awareness month is going to be about inclusion – it is no secret that I LOVE it! Today’s focus though is on using an ipad in the classroom. Brooklyn is in the third grade this year, her classroom (along with all the third grades at Ryan Park […]
