Even More Lovely Blog Awards


In the fall, I received the One Lovely Blog Award from Bendigo at Bendigo's Rage. As stated in the rules, I must give the award to 15 other blogs. I have done it in increments - these are the next 5. They are all chosen for different reasons - one because it plays ABBA music while reading the blog, and a couple because of the excellent special education law they provide. Have fun reading:

1. Special Education Law Blog
2. Wrightslaw Blog
3. Special Needs Reads
4. The Blog of the Courtier

The rules, upon receiving this award, state that you must:
1. Accept the award;
2. Post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link;
3. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered; and
4. Contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Maybe they can sign a few words that mean a lot to them. Find a way to get them involved. How do they see themselves living? By themselves, in a group home, with another family or with a sibling? Where do they want to live? In another city, in an apartment, in a house? How far away do they want to live from family? What level of independence can they handle? Do they want someone to check in on them? Do they want to find a job? Do they need a job coach or supportive employment? Who will help them with their finances? Is there someone they tru
