Special Needs Blogger Weekend Link-Up: Your happy place

Welcome to another Special Needs Blogger Weekend Link-Up. So glad you came!

The idea

Share a favorite post of the week—yours or someone else's.

What to do

Scroll all the way down to the bottom of this post. Where it says "Your name" put the name of your blog followed by the title of your post (or just the name of the post, if there's no room—you get 80 characters).

Like this: Love That Max: I'm Changing My Name To Lightning McQueen

Where it says "Your URL" put the direct link to the post.

Click "Enter." Leave a comment if you want to say more. Go check out some great posts.

Happy linking!


  1. A Tale of Two Evaluations takes a look at the questionable validity of evaluations and reports (which I point out are just "opinions on letterhead). It's my attempt to reassure parents who are reading abysmal reports during this IEP season.

    Thanks for the link-up, Ellen!

  2. Thinking about your child's future?
    Find out about the growing number of college options for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in this week's Life After IEPs post.

    Ellen - thanks so much for the link-up! So great to read everyone's posts!

  3. I'm looking forward to reading other's posts. Thanks for the link-up!

  4. I wrote a post for Preemie Babies 101 about my experience in EI as a working parent. My daughter has aged out of EI now, but the lessons are still useful as we navigate the school district.

  5. Wrote about my daughter's special needs cheerleading team from December 2010. Even though it's an older post, the team and the competitions they've been involved in have made her more confident and have helped her physically, too. Also, the parents are brought together and learn from each other and support each other. Great thing for the kids!!!

    This is a blog I write for.

  6. Hey Ellen - I linked up this week because I'm asking for advice on the flu vaccine. I'm always impressed with what we parents can learn from each other and look forward to getting some great suggestions for staying healthy. Have a great weekend!

  7. Hello! I posted "Autism Friendly World" by EdNinja, it's about AMC's sensory friendly films and how other companies could join them in doing something great for children :)

    Thanks for the opportunity Ellen!

  8. I just posted an article I wrote for Kveller this week called "Ten Things I Wish Someone Told Me About Parenting a Child With Special Needs."

  9. Thanks for so faithfully posting this link up, Ellen.

  10. Thanks for the link-up! Hoping to hear from some other families of kids (or adults!) with CAS!

  11. Sorry I'm so late to link up. Actually, that's what my post is about!

  12. Thanks for the link up, this is my first! My blog has only been up a little over 60 days. I shared this week's spotlight post. It shared the journey of a mother of two little boys born with Celiac Disease.

  13. I haven't used my blog to discuss my book "Brynn's Bizarre Behaviour" until now.

    I am not looking for sales only votes as "Brynn's Bizarre Behavior" has been selected as a finalist for "Favorite New Special-Needs Children's Book" in the Readers' Choice Awards!!!!!!

    If you read the following post on my blog it describes all the passionate reasons why I wrote the book in the first place.

  14. Hi everyone, first time linking up and hope I haven't broken any blog etiquette by barging in!
    The post I've added is called 'I don't know how you cope . . .' ~ something I'm sure lots of you have heard by now!
    I now have my evening planned ~ there's 59 posts in front of mine to read!
    Thanks, and take care.

  15. I wrote a post inspired by the amazing song, Worn by Christian Artists, Tenth Avenue North. This post is also a tribute to those who have suffered many, many sleepless nights.

  16. I didn't have a great blogging week. Seems I am feeling better emotionally so the writing has suffered a bit. Guess that means, next week will be better

  17. Thank you for the link-up. I posted about the special way my son communicated with me while he was alive and how he still communicates with me since his passing. Never underestimate a mother's intuition...


Thanks for sharing!
