“I can tell you as a parent that special needs planning is hard, very hard…..It was like trying to put a jigsaw puzzle together without the picture on the box….when we go home with our pieces, we found some were missing, some didn’t fit and every now and then someone came by and took away one of our pieces…gradually you fill in the areas of the puzzle.”
