The Inclusion Chronicles

Boy this week is just getting away from me! Hope you all are doing well.

I wrote a post about Little Guy and inclusion over at Disaboom.

If you get a moment, come over and give me a holler!

Could not for the life of me figure out how to leave a comment at Disaboom. So I'm back here.

Kudos to you, your husband (loved his response!), Little Guy and those teachers.
Thumbs down to the small-minded principal.

Gourd, that site's content is great, but its user-friendliness sucks. I thought I was going crazy, trying to figure out how to leave you a comment (said comment being something about adoring your husband's comeback), but you'd have to have, I don't know, a Master's in Special Ed to find your way around that antisocial pile of code.

Anyway, it rocked, and if you can tell me how to leave a comment over there, I'll be happy to repeat myself.

I couldn't figure out how to leave a comment at Disaboom either - I did find a sign up form, but I had to live in the US. Mind you, thinking about it, I could have fibbed and told them I was from New England, it's only a tiny, 3 letter lie.

Anyhoo, I loved your post! Little Guy did very well in his choice of parents - your husbands remark to the pushy principal was an absolute classic!

Actually, I will go there now, tell bare faced lies and paraphrase this comment!

I loved your husband's response! As a teacher, I have seen firsthand the successes of inclusion....as long as it is handled correctly. It certainly sounds as though your son's was!


I wish I could have seen that principal's face when he said that! The nerve of that woman!

Hi Attila,
It’s egregious that some individuals don’t think before they spew out insipid remarks that are hurtful or unkind.

“Disaboom” should issue their own “Handbook for Dummies” so we can navigate around the site a bit more readily.

I loved the article and could not agree more, I mean to think you would send little guy to a school without a football program, Harvard, Definitely Harvard!!
