Using Technology to Communicate with Your Developmentally Disabled Child

On Feb. 14th, Elizabeth Aquino, writer of the beautiful blog a moon worn as if it had been a shell, will be co-hosting a webinar on using technology to communicate with your developmentally disabled child.

Details can be found in the link above. I have so much respect for families of non-verbal and pre-verbal children. The love they give, despite not getting to hear “I love you” back verbally is so moving to me. They are true examples of “unconditional love” (often talked about but less frequently seen) walking around on this planet.

It’s fitting the webinar takes place on Valentine’s Day. A day earmarked for love.

  1. I knew we were meant to connect! My eldest child (who is now 33) has Aspergers I believe. He was diagnosed with Tourette’s growing up, but his behaviour is more closely aligned with Aspergers. Back in the day Aspergers wasn’t even in the DSMIV, he was our first child, I was 21, and knew nothing about raising an ‘ordinary’ child, let alone an exceptional one! Thank you for being an advocate for your daughter and others like her; I was well intentioned but with no tools at my disposal did more damage than good sadly. Keep up the good work!

    I truly cannot even imagine what it was like to raise a child on the spectrum 30+ years ago. Blessings to you and your now adult child. I hope you’ve been able to find compassion for yourself and healing for both of you.

    Yes, indeed, no accidents.

  4. Thank you so much Michelle! You’ve gone above and beyond —
