I met a new blogger this week. I mean, I met a blogger I haven’t known before now; she’s not really a “new” blogger. She actually popped over from the Mom Blog Network, which just goes to show you it was worth signing up with all the social media sites I have over the last year and a half.
Anyway, Shawnda’s blog is called Asperger’s Syndrome Awareness, and she is also writing a book about her experiences raising her son, who is 13 and has a diagnosis of Asperger’s. Pretty cool!
I was reading some of her posts and was intrigued by her thoughts on Least Restrictive Environment and whether the way it’s put into practice is really the best thing for some of our kids. I’d love to hear your thoughts on what she has to say about it. Do you think, like Shawnda does, that it’s often really code for spending the least money possible?
