Welcome to episode #10 of Special Needs Kids are People Too!
Have you ever wondered why I titled my podcast “Special Needs Kids are People Too” when there is a push to stop using terms like “Special Needs”? There is a reason!!

I hope you enjoyed listening to today’s episode and gained some new insights into the wonderful variety of people in our world!
And remember, Special Needs Kids are People Too!
