This is from a parent of a child who was just diagnosed:
"Sometimes I feel guilty about not having caught my son's problem sooner. I feel bad that he had to struggle so long just because I didn't know about his disability. I know that I did the best I could but I still feel guilty. I also feel angry that the school had to know because he was so far behind but they didn't do anything to help him. I worry about what his future will look like."
This was from a parent whose child just graduated:
"I am thrilled to see my daughter graduate because it has been such a long and difficult journey but this journey made her a better and stronger person." I am so proud that she is the woman she is today because of her disabilities. She now has the confidence to go to college and although it will be challenging I know that she has the strength and drive to reach her goal."
