Just wanted to drop in and say 'hello'. I sort of find myself with on foot in the SN forums and the other out. Two of our three boys are hard of hearing which appears to be genetic in nature (no known cause at this time). They do well in all areas with the help of hearing aids and some previous speech therapy, but there are still challenges we face as a family on a daily basis that sit firmly in the 'special needs' category.
I also have an amazing brother with Down's Syndrome, so I have a special place in my heart for all SN families. Having a brother with special needs has been a blessing in many ways. He's one of my favourite people in the entire world
Enough rambling... of to check out more of this great site!
