Barbara, you have a very good list of resources with important topics for parents. Bullying is a constant problem, but special needs parents also worry about their kids driving and attending college. I want to thank you for including "Creating Visuals on the Fly for Unpredictable Activities" by Judy Endow, an author, international speaker, and Special-Ism writer. I'm sure your readers will find her information useful.
