Special Ed broadcasts on Focus on Family earlier this week
- I rarely hear Focus on the Family and know part of this series is a rerun
from a few years ago, but it's the first time I've heard these broadcasts
which are of special interest to us families.
http://listen.family.org/daily/A000000551.cfm takes you to the 3rd broadcast
and on that page, there's a list called "Today's Resources" and below it is
"Related Articles". I've wanted to listen to them but haven't had time, but
knowing I may never find time to do so, I thought I'd go ahead and tell you
about these broadcasts and resources before I forget. It sounds like there
are some interesting discussions between the host who has adopted a child
from Russia who now has autism and Dr. Larimore, who I think may have
changed his perspective from when the broadcasts first aired. Dr. Dobson
kept saying in the first 2 broadcasts that the info in the book Lynn
Hamilton wrote is "controversial" which makes me think it probably is a Good
Book, as it appears her son has recovered and we all KNOW Ritalin or
similar drugs do not "recover" a child from autism.
Anyway, I wanted to list the broadcasts so you could listen to them on line.
The August 1st one needs Kleenex! It discusses Dr. Larimore's child, Dr.
Beck' child as well as autism so it covers a wider variety of special needs
issues than just autism. So even if you aren't affected by autism, you
would most likely appreciate this broadcast. Those who have children on
Autism or Asperger Spectrum would like all the broadcasts. You realize we
really aren't so "all alone" after all.

If any of you have read Lynn's book, I'd love to hear your thoughts about
