  • Therapy: Too Little, Too Much, Too Expensive, Too Tired!
    Tweet Like how some people have soccer practice or ballet as their curricular activities, parents of special needs kids have therapy.

    Tweet Yesterday I had my daughters annual doctor visit. I attend them because I have to, I could say that I needed to since they include shots normally but my skepticism in the medical profession does not allow that sense of reliability.  I had recently paid an amount just to get the  copy list of shots for the school (a rip off if you ask me to actually have doctor...
