Reading Program For Down Syndrome Children

I received this email and I wanted to share
Hello Carol,

I just happened to come across your Blog while I was working, and wanted to let you know about our reading program.
I am the founder of eReadingPro, and was one of the co-founders of Out of the Box Reading. As Out of the Box Reading, we traveled all over North America presenting free workshops to parents and children of Down syndrome. (We’ve had tremendous success in the US). Sadly however, Out of the Box Reading has recently closed its doors due to irreconcilable differences. I have continued on with the same product via a new name: eReadingPro. Our reading program follows a proven system of using a well organized and structured whole-word approach to teaching reading.
I invite you to check out our new site at: I know you won’t be disappointed! Although we cannot officially post our Product page, you can have a sneak peak here: Enjoy!

Warm regards,

Denise MacDonald

Have you ever asked yourself Why Me? What happened that I have a handicapped child?
I was talking to someone about this several years back when we starting a support group for parents with handicapped children.

Her answer to this question was that
God gave special children to special people.

My Shannon is a blessing to me and I wouldn't change a thing. She is my angel.
Right now she is watching a movie and eating on a hot dog.

She is eligible to take summer school at no cost but I am undecided about that.
Should I let her go or should I let her enjoy summer without school?
