nanab, it's okay. I've been busy coaching an individual skills basketball team and my Down syndrome son has had an ear infection so my mind has been kind of busy. I don't feel ignored. One of the things about working with special people is that they teach you patience. I do love spending time with them and I appreciate my son for introducing me to the wonderful world of special needs. Yes, they create a special bond and it's always great to chat with others who know and understand that love and understanding produce so much more than pity.

pixiedi - I just saw that you had made a comment to me to share that you are a retired Sped. TA also.
You must think I am so rude to have not responded to you, I'm sorry. I honestly didn't see it until just now. It is nice to meet someone that has shared the same kind of special bond that is made when working with these wonderful children/young adults. I hope we cross paths again sometime to share a few stories with each other. Bonnie

Thank you for posting this puzzle pixiedi! It is beautiful! My grandson has Asperger's (high functioning autism). We didn't know until he was 15! I was an Elementary teacher and had never heard of it until 2004 when he was 15. I'm now retired and substitute teaching in Spec Ed much of the time. There are so many kids out there who need all the love and understanding we can give them! This is a good way to spread the awareness.

nanab I retired from being a sp. ed. assistant 12 years ago and we moved from Texas to Oregon for my husband's health. I do miss the kids but some have kept in touch with me and several parents have also stayed with me on Facebook. I keep my Special Olympics coaching certificate active and have done some coaching here. I love all of them so much, they truly are special.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful puzzle. I have many fond memories of the 32 years I worked as a special education teaching assistant. I retired three years ago and I still miss seeing "my" kids every day.

My 2 grandsons are on the Autism spectrum. I think their dad is too, but it wasn't known back when he was young. By the way, I HATE that they've taken the ('s) away from Down's, I've never met a "Down" person with this syndrome yet!!

generic_bear, Muggins and Katiesmom22 Thank you. I'm the mother of a son with Down syndrome and most of his closest friends have had autism so I understand and know the frustration all special needs parents have. I'm a big advocate of spreading the word that our kids are special in many ways and deserve as much equality as possible.

I LOVE that quilt!! That is so cool! And says soooo much! Thank you!

Beautiful quilt and the message is one we all need to remember. Thank you so much.
