  1. Wow. Anyone who is not moved by this has a heart made of stone.

    Indeed

    While ALL of what she said is true and great, what about those children with Special Needs who aren’t classified in one of the six areas to be met for assistance. I have a son with verbal Apraxia who needs remediation and repetitive assistance for both speech development and overall cognitive retention, yet he somehow doesn’t meet the standard to receive this form of assistance. So unlike Ms. Swingle’s child who is thriving due to this help, my son is left behind because he simply has the wrong disability. Somehow that seems inherently unfair, and may actually fall closer to the category of being discriminatory.

      I totally agree that this program should be open to not only all Florida children with disabilities- a program similar to this should be open to all Florida children period.
